The University of Worcester Arena boasts state of the art conference facilities in a fresh, modern and dynamic conference suite on the first floor of the building.
In 2015, the Arena won the prestigious Guardian University Award in the ‘Buildings that Inspire’ category. The Guardian Awards aim to recognise and reward projects in universities that demonstrate genuine innovation in the sector, collaborative delivery on the ground, and meaningful impact both inside their institutions and beyond, with the potential to inspire others. The University of Worcester Arena was one of only six national projects to receive funding from Sport England’s Iconic Facilities Olympic legacy fund, with a grant of £1.5m and also attracted grants from The Trustees of the Foundation for Sport and the Arts (£250,000), England Basketball (£375,000), England Badminton (£200,000).
