“The facilities offered at Senate House made it a perfect place to launch the first ever SOAS Alumni & Friends Weekend.
Beveridge Hall is elegantly furnished, and remarkably, it allows speakers to retain an intimacy with a large audience of up to 450 people. It must be one of the best lecture halls of its size. Macmillan Hall was also a great place to host a pre-event reception. And the UoL staffs were a pleasure to work with throughout.”
