One of the benefits of having our dedicated headquarters at 41 Portland Place is the facilities we can offer to our Fellows. We designed the building with Fellows in mind and aim to provide a useful base in central London for our Fellows.
We have a comfortable Fellows Room in the Jean Shanks Library on the ground floor, which Fellows are welcome to use from 8am–8pm, Monday–Friday. Complimentary hot drinks are available for Fellows and their guests, as well as meeting tables and workstations with free wi-fi. You can use the Fellows Room for informal meetings, as a base between appointments, somewhere to catch up on work, or simply a place to meet and chat with other Fellows.
If you are using the building as a rest stop there are secure lockers to leave luggage in the cloakroom and a private Fellows’ shower and changing room available in the basement – please speak to reception on arrival. Secure bicycle storage is also located in one of the vaults at the front of the building, or you can pick up a bike from the London bicycle hire scheme located right outside the building.
There are also 9 period and modern rooms available to Fellows for events, conferences, meetings and entertaining. Fellows receive a 20% discount on room hire and can also access special discount packages for catering.
