Meeting rooms

These are the spaces on Parkville campus reserved primarily for activities associated with University administration. They can also be booked by external organisations subject to availability.

If you are unable to secure a booking in one of these venues, other venues with similar attributes may be available. The Graduate Centre is another alternative.
