Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC), University of Strathclyde

Founded in 1796 as “the Place of Useful Learning”, Strathclyde is a leading international technological university in the heart of the city, proud winner of The Times Higher Education’s University of the Year 2019, The Sunday Times Good University Guide’s Scottish University of the Year 2020 and shortlisted for University of the Year in 2021.

Within easy reach of transport networks, hotels, and the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), our flagship Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC) offers state-of-the-art conferencing facilities all year round.

On Level 2, TIC’s versatile Main Auditorium accommodates up to 450 delegates in air-conditioned comfort, and a system of movable walls allows us to subdivide the room into a flat-floored space for 130 and tiered auditoria seating 150 or 300. A further 150-seater auditorium on Level 1 is perfect for day conferences and large breakout groups.

Upstairs on Level 3, the Centre’s Conference Rooms offer bright, comfortable accommodation for up to 50 delegates. With flexible layouts and user-friendly audio-visual solutions, they are perfect for meetings, smaller conferences, and breakout sessions. Movable walls allow us to open some rooms to accommodate 60-80 delegates. Spacious, interconnected foyers link the conferencing spaces on Levels 1, 2 and 3 - with natural daylight and contemporary furnishing, they are the perfect venue for networking, catering, and exhibitions.

At the top of the building, the Executive Suite offers a flexible, self-contained venue for up to 100 delegates, with its own registration area and networking foyer, as well as views right across the campus.
