Event & Conference Booking

The Language Research Centre has become a popular choice for hosting small & medium sized conferences, symposia and workshops. The LRC offers 

  • a contained & private conference environment located on the 4th floor of the Craigie Hall D-block.
  • A reception area for conference socializing and entertaining
  • Two rooms that seat 30 participants
  • One room that seats 20 participants
  • All rooms are equipped with the newest audio-visual equipment

 Academic, faculty and student group bookings normally do not pay room rental fees if they book LRC rooms in conjunction with a class or a departmental function. These groups are only subject to room rates if a) they charge their guests an attendance fee and/or b) they organize a conference, symposium, or workshop.

Room rates apply to all other groups or associations. Booking preferences will be given to those events that are related to language research and language teaching. Please contact to inquire about room rates and bookings. Room Rates include the use of audio-visual equipment and the use of the reception area. An additional set-up fee of $15/ hr will be charged if the event organizers do not return room equipment back in its original state. 

Please note that the LRC is booked heavily during the fall and winter terms until 3:30 pm every day. Past events have typically taken place during reading weeks, weekends or outside of the regular sessions.
