Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre

One of the landmark features of today’s Worcester College site is a brand new conference facility dedicated by alumnus HRH Sultan Nazrin Shah of Perak, Malaysia. Situated by the lake, overlooking the gardens and the cricket pavillion, the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre offers a world-class venue for conferences and events.

This contemporary building sits lightly in its environment. Bright, elegant, and with a high-end finish throughout, it is built with durable oak and with limestone from the Clipsham quarry, which also supplied the stone for Oxford’s Examinations Schools and the Houses of Parliament.

This new building is centred around the Tuanku Bainun Auditorium, an accessible and beautifully appointed lecture theatre with seating for up to 170 delegates. The auditorium features all of the built-in technological amenities one would expect of a modern conference venue (please see the accompanying brochure for more detailed specifications).

An airy foyer forms an interior courtyard that connects the auditorium to the seminar rooms, an exhibition space, and the building’s informal social area – the E-Hub. A small servery in the foyer will cater for coffee breaks, finger buffets and drinks receptions. Floor-to-ceiling doors lead to a terrace, with views across the sports field towards the cricket pavilion.

Flanking the terrace are two seminar rooms with panoramic windows that make the most of the spectacular view. Each of the seminar rooms is set up with a boardroom table for 20 delegates, and includes a built-in screen with AV provision. Similarly the exhibition space, which is perfect for displaying posters, features dramatic windows that look out across the ornamental lake.

Each room can be hired independently or the entire building can be hired as a dedicated conference facility with exclusive use.

“The creation of a beautiful amphitheatre-style auditorium, with foyer, social space, seminar rooms and e-hub overlooking the sports field and lake is an aspiration that I have been privileged to help the College achieve.”
HRH Sultan Nazrin Shah (PPE 1976)
Ruler of Perak, Malaysia
