Medical Teaching Centre

Facilities, Chairs X&Y


The MTC is equipped with a wide range of A/V equipment to facilitate teaching and conferences, and we specialise in providing excellent support. None of our rooms exclude users with disabilities.

A more detailed description of the rooms available for use is available through the links on the right hand side, including information about how the furniture may be arranged. We are happy to arrange furniture as you wish, but if you do your own rearrangement then please return chairs and tables to the positions they were in when you arrived.

For more information or to book a room, please get in touch.

Important Information: VCRs are no longer supported. If you wish to use VCR tapes as part of your teaching material, please consider having them converted to DVD. For more information please see the Services page.

Events & Conferences

The MTC can be booked for conferences at any time outside of term, and at weekends. Late night weekday bookings are available throughout the rest of the year.

We are happy to accommodate conferences from half a day to two week training courses and we can help arrange University accommodation for bookings lasting several days or provide a list of local hotels and B&Bs.

Support staff can be made available at additional cost but this is not compulsory if you are happy using the equipment yourself.

Car parking space is limited at weekends but there are various Pay & Display car parks within easy walking distance, and we are a ten minute walk from the train station.


While we do not offer a catering service ourselves we recommend the services of Meet In Leeds, the University's Event & Conference service.

if you are catering for large numbers, be aware that the only rooms suitable for this purpose are either the Level 7 Foyer, adjacent to the Medical Lecture Theatre, or Rooms X & Y on Level 8. The Level 7 Foyer is a public area so is only practical during weekends and outside of term time.

Smaller buffets can be served in any of our other rooms, although in the tutorial rooms U, V & W (1-4) it would be wise to book an extra room for catering if you are serving mroe than just tea and coffee.
