Buchanan Building

The Buchanan Building is home to the University’s School of Modern Languages. It has twelve seminar rooms and is particularly useful when a large number of small group rooms are required in one building. It is at the eastern end of Market Street and convenient for most of our town centre residences.

The newly refurbished Buchanan Theatre is a performance venue which is ideal for opening or closing ceremonies and plenary presentations. It has a capacity of 360, fully embedded A/V and a large stage. 

The twelve seminar rooms have capacities from 14 to 70 delegates. They are located over the four floors of building. There is no lift so access to the rooms on the upper floors is by stairs.

The Buchanan Building has only a small foyer adjacent to the main entrance, which is suitable for registration purposes. Refreshment breaks are normally taken in Lower College Hall, or one of the other venues in the United College, which is 100 metres away across North Street. Poster and exhibition venues are also available in the United College
