Adult Education Centre


York College, one of the top 10 Colleges in the country, has a £60 million building with first class resources, facilities and on-site parking that makes it an ideal venue for your event.

Our facilities include various sized meeting rooms, a 90-seater lecture theatre, IT suites, a theatre, sports hall, dance studios, commercial training kitchens and hair & beauty salons all of which are available for hire to accommodate a variety of different corporate functions. Our impressive four storey high Atrium at the heart of the College building makes an ideal location for marketplace events.

The majority of our facilities are mainly available during College holidays but we can organise functions that will enable the students to get involved during term time which will give them valuable hands on experience. We have been involved in such events as dinners for local charities - where our hospitality students cook and serve the meals; awards ceremonies - where our students have provided entertainment and the technical audio visual effects; motor trade shows - where our students have been involved in practical demonstrations..... the list goes on!

Whether you are looking to book a full conference event or just looking for a small meeting room, York College is the ideal location.

York College also provide various courses to help with the development of your workforce through a series of planned commercial short courses or we can develop bespoke courses to suit your specific needs. Visit our website for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you.
