About Rhodes University Conferencing Division
Due to its ideal location and diverse facilities Rhodes University is the perfect place to host a conference. The University is situated in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, which is almost equidistant from the major centres of South Africa. This unique part of the country has a lot to offer the conference delegate.
Rhodes University has a diverse range of conference venues that can cater for all your conferencing needs. Added to this it also can fulfil most accommodation and catering needs associated with a conference.
Rhodes University offers conference delegates the opportunity to meet in the University's gracious buildings set in lovely grounds. In these tranquil surroundings, away from the rush of the big city, participants are able to relax and concentrate on the matter in hand.
Rhodes University has a proud history of excellence and we in the Conference Office look to uphold this tradition. We have successfully hosted hundreds of conferences and events of national and international importance including the annual National Arts Festival.
The conference office organises accommodation within or outside Rhodes University. Within the university, guests and or delegates may be accommodated either in the Continuing Education Centre (throughout the year) or alternatively, the university residence system, (during vacation periods only).
In addition the conference office maintains good working relationships and agreements between the university and other places of accommodation within Grahamstown. There are two hotels in Grahamstown and many up-market Guest Houses, as well as some fine B&B establishments.
Accommodation is, at times, co-ordinated between guests and suitable accommodation institutions according to client needs.
