The College can offer lecture/seminar rooms for up to 135 people, and larger lecture theatres are available for hire nearby in the City. Some audio-visual equipment is provided on hire by the College, and additional items are easily available from local suppliers. A Conference Office with telephone/internet connection can be provided for the conference organiser.
The MBI Al Jaber Building is a new auditorium (completed July 2009), situated in the south-west corner of the College. It is built into the bastion of the ancient City wall and both preserves and accentuates original features such as the arrow-slots and embrasures of the bastion. The design includes large picture windows that bring natural light into the auditorium and also incorporates two small seminar rooms that can serve as 'break-out' rooms. Sliding glass screens to the foyer give access to the Turner Quad, linking it with the facilities of the Old President's Lodgings.
The rooftop Handa Terrace, with the feel of the deck of an ocean liner, features a garden space for quiet study and affords beautiful views across Christ Church Meadow to the river, blending into the surroundings of the 'wild' garden for which the College is noted. The lower first floor terrace - a popular venue for receptions and a space to mingle during the intervals of performances and meetings - has marvellous views of the Cathedral and the colleges' gardens.
The auditorium has a capacity of 120 in theatre style, and modular seating allowing for various smaller events with the ability to accommodate meetings for up to 40 persons seated around an open square, as well providing the ideal venue for social events. Good acoustics and modern AV facilities are particular features.
