The Fenner Room is an intimate meeting room that can be set in various configurations based on requirements. The Fenner Room features historical artefacts that give the room a warm and inviting ambience, and is particularly suited to interview panels, private business meetings and highly-focused discussions.
The room is reached via two flights of wide, well-lit stairs.
