Mackintosh Building Venue Hire >

***The Mackintosh building is currently undergoing extensive conservation work and major construction work is currently taking place on the Renfrew Street site opposite, with phase one of the School's Garnethill estate redevelopment plan.  We are therefore unable to accept venue hire bookings at this time.***

This work is scheduled to finish in January 2014.  Please contact us if you wish to be notified of new opportunities for venue hire from January 2014 onwards.

Thank you.

Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the turn of the twentieth century, The Glasgow School of Art is still a working art school populated by students and staff from all over the world.

Please note that due to the fragile nature of many of the School's interiors, we are unable to host parties or family events.

The Mackintosh building at The Glasgow School of Art normally offers three main impressive spaces for hire:

  1. The Mackintosh Room (for meetings of up to 25 people)
  2. The Mackintosh Lecture Theatre (for seminars and presentations for up to 100 people)
  3. The Mackintosh visitor centre (for corporate receptions of up to 60 people)

The Mackintosh 'Museum', the School's main exhibition space, is also occasionally available for corporate receptions, subject to the permission of the Exhibitions Director.

Please note that studios are not available to rent at any time.

Our aim is to be as flexible as possible in meeting our client's individual requirements. All functions are tailor-made and we can organise a range of additional services including student led guided tours of the Mackintosh Building and award winning gifts through The Glasgow School of Art Shop.

The School is within walking distance of the major railway and bus stations.  Car parking facilities are provided by a large multi-storey car park situated nearby.  For further travel information click here.
