Ceremony venues

There are a number of locations across the University which are available for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.

In order to get married within one of the University’s chapels, you must have a connection to the University or to the local area. This usually means that one or both members of a couple must be:

  • a current member of University staff
  • a current University student
  • a graduate of the University
  • a child or grandchild of a member of staff, student or graduate
  • a local resident (living at an address with a postcode starting KY16)
  • a current or past student at St Leonards School.

Wider access is occasionally allowed. For further information on who is eligible to marry in a University venue, please take a look at the University wedding guidelines.
