Besides performance venues, the University Cultural Centre also provides comfortable spaces that support events in our main performance venues. These may be configured for a variety of uses including meetings, exhibitions, presentations, catering receptions, and light entertainment.

Function Rooms

We have two function rooms, Function Room 1 (109m2) and Function Room 2 (119m2). Equipped with mirrors, sound-proofing materials and flooring, they aresuitable for meetings, presentations and dance or drama rehearsals. A theatre seating set-up can accommodate by to 50 persons. By default, the rooms are empty with no seating configuration

VIP Lounge

The VIP Lounge is a premium space suitable as a VIP holding or reception area. It is furnished with sofas and armchairs as well as two attached restrooms. It seats 12 people.

Foyers

The Foyer spaces outside our performance venues provide spacious areas to host your guests with catering and light entertainment. By day, the glass facade of the Centre allows the atrium style foyers to benefit from a stream of natural daylight. By night, light cast from its interiors welcomes audiences to the shows.

Measuring 26m by 15m, the Dance Studio is designed and equipped to facilitate dance rehearsals. Featuring sprung timber flooring layered with Jumbo dance mats covering an area of 24m x 15m, the draw of the Dance Studio as a rehearsal space is that its size is comparable to that of the Hall stage, facilitating full scale rehearsals for major Hall productions. The large size also means that the space is easily converted for use as a rehearsal space for other presentations such as drama and music.The space is equipped with built-in ceiling speakers.

Equipped with acoustic shelling, the Hall comprises a series of convex surfaces to scatter the acoustic energy and avoid concentrated focal points of sound within the room in order to achieve optimum acoustic performance. It is also equipped with a fly tower consisting of 65 units of fly sets which are a combination of manual counter-weight fly sets and motorised fly sets. It is a modified horse-shoe design with stalls parterre and two circle levels.

The Hall is a venue for orchestra performances, concerts, opera, dance and musicals. Its space can also be used for multimedia presentation, seminars and convocation ceremonies.

The Theatre, which seats up to 425, is a cosy venue for both artists and audiences. Fully retractable seating and lighting bars encourage innovative staging configurations, allowing the artist to manipulate performances in a versatile and flexible space.

The more intimate construction of the theatre facilitates a greater degree of resonance within the space to the considerable benefit of performances involving un-amplified speech and music. This makes the Theatre perfect for smaller scale events that require closeness and interaction between performers and the audience.
