I just want to thank you for hosting the NASMA event so brilliantly.  Everyone who attended was impressed both with the venue and facilities. The organisation from start to finish was so easy and stress free, which makes a very welcome change to past events I have organised – so the behind the scenes work is really appreciated!

The accommodation and food were extremely good and all these things combined made for a very successful event.

When there is a commercial need to introduce a business or industry to the University our experience shows this is best done on campus through University House. It provides a quality service, great cuisine and an experience customers will cherish and remember.
