The hospitality service is available during the week from 8:45am to 5:45pm, unless the event is hosted at Courtyard Café. We are also available to cater during the weekend and in the evening.  Please contact us for further details for evening and weekend events.

Alternatively you can have the use of Courtyard Café for functions and meetings. The Courtyard Café can accommodate 40 people sitting and for events and buffets we can accommodate 95 people.  For Courtyard Café venue booking, contact .

If you are organising an event or a function we can discuss and arrange for your own special menu to fit your requirements and budget.  This can include special dietary requirements to the setup of the venue and the event, such as, flower arrangements, table decoration, display and presentation of your logo, and waiter / waitress service.

We can also offer pre-booked vouchers for your clients to enjoy the service and hospitality available at Courtyard Café. Should any of your clients outside UCL wish to avail themselves of our catering services then we would be delighted to assist them.  However, there would be a premium of 10% added to the invoice.

In order to ensure we are able to obtain the freshest ingredients and make our plans, it is important that all hospitality bookings should be made no later than 48 hours prior to the event using the booking form or via email to

We all have to cope with last minutes changes and we will do our best to accommodate them. Please contact Abbas on 07740 166 167 should you have any late bookings (within the 48 hour period)  and we will endeavour to deal with your request if at all possible.

Similarly should an event need to be cancelled at short notice we will do our best to minimise your financial exposure but we reserve the right to charge for materials and any other costs that may have already been committed to.

All hospitality bookings under £15.00 pounds will incur a £5.00 delivery and setup charge. UCL bookings cannot be accepted without a department account code unless previously arranged. All prices are subject to VAT which will be charged at the then applicable rate.

We strive to create the right ambience for your event and we welcome all constructive feedback. Please email Abbas at
