IT training rooms

Thames Suite by John Cairns


The Thames Suite of seven computer rooms combines innovative room design with state-of-the-art computer and audio-visual equipment to create a peaceful and professional environment for your training courses, seminars, presentations, workshops and events.


Every delegate at the Thames Suite has access to an internet-connected PC or Mac with common desktop applications, while presenters’ podiums feature networked PCs connected to a multi-touch interactive screen with the option to connect your own laptop. Our rooms have high quality interactive screens, sound systems and wireless access.

The setup of our rooms can be changed to suit the type of event planned. Our rooms can be configured to accommodate from 8 to 32 students at computers or audiences from 20 to 60 for lectures, presentations or conferences.


Facilities in the Thames Suite have been designed for easy access. The building has ramped access for wheelchair users.

The Thames Suite is on the ground floor. All rooms have height-adjustable tables and seating, and computers can be adjusted to suit specific requirements. The larger teaching rooms also feature a hearing loop system.

Parking can be arranged on request for delegates with disabilities.
