Portering Charges

Rooms booked outside standard opening hours may attract a portering charge.

Portering charges

Some University buildings (e.g. Parkinson and Business School) are always open during evenings and for specific periods at the weekend and there is no charge for using these rooms for internal University activities. For other rooms, the following portering charges may apply:

  • £17.43 - Monday to Thursday, after 6pm (Baines Wing and Michael Sadler) Closed after 5pm Friday.
  • £26.15 - Monday to Saturday (other buildings).
  • £34.86 - Sunday (all buildings).

Contact us for further advice. In the evening, charges apply from building closing time to the end time of the activity plus 30 minutes’ lock-up time.
