Joining a course in the Thames Suite

Joining a course in the Thames Suite

Starting at the end of April 2022 it will be possible to attend a selection of our courses in-person. These courses will be held in the Thames Suite at 13 Banbury Rd.

The range of in-person courses will be increased from Michaelmas term 2022.

The remainder of our portfolio will continue to be provided online, in parallel with the in-person courses.

View and book courses that are currently available.

For our Trinity term 2022 courses, we have chosen to use our two largest rooms – Isis and Evenlode. These rooms have air handling units that provide fresh air and remove used air via a mechanical source.  The maximum capacity for a course is 24, but many classes will be smaller.

Our rooms are cleaned every morning. We will not be providing sanitiser or wipes in the rooms, but please feel free to bring your own and sanitise your work area or any shared equipment as you wish. 

For most of our in-person courses, you can bring your own device. Please see details in the specific course description of the course you are attending. 


Please arrive in good time for your course and check-in at the Registration Desk in the Welcome area. During every course there will be opportunities for breaks, so please feel free to leave the Thames Suite and go outside. Our vending machines and water coolers are in operation. 

In line with University guidance, wearing a face-covering is now a personal choice. However, it is still important for us all to continue being considerate and to take steps to minimise the risk of infection. We, therefore, ask all course delegates to: 

  • avoid contact with others if you might be infectious 
  • respect other people’s space 
  • keep up to date with COVID vaccinations 
  • respect those who choose to wear a face-covering 

You should continue to follow the University’s advice about what to do if you are unwell.

If you are unable to attend a course you have booked please cancel your place
