|UNISA SUNNYSIDE CAMPUS CONFERENCE CENTRE
CONFERENCING IN SUNNYSIDE
Unisa Sunnyside Campus and Conference Centre is situated at the southern gateway to Pretoria, close to all major routes into Pretoria and the city centre. It offers superb conference facilities in charming heritage buildings. From 1902 until the 1980s it housed Pretoria Normaal Kollege and after that Pretoria College of Education. Unisa took over ownership of the property in 1992, and
has redesigned five buildings on the northern part of the Sunnyside Campus to provide maximum flexibility, comfort and convenience for the conference attendee.
Building Two, The Sunnyside Conference Hall, dates back to 1909 and was recently renovated to accommodate 410 people. Building Four, Seven and Nine complete the list of conference facilities with a total of thirty-eight conference venues. Building Six, dating from 1910, houses the restaurant, an attractive facility to give you an opportunity for relaxation and enjoyment. We restored all of these buildings to their original splendour through comprehensive building renovation projects.
The beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds with ample, secure parking ensure a memorable and exiting conference or function - First-World Excellence and Old-World Charm.
SUNNYSIDE CONFERENCE HALL - BUILDING 2
This building dates back to the turn of the century and the style is that of the era when Wilhelmina was queen of the Netherlands. This venue can seat 410 people in an auditorium layout and it comprises the seating area ( capacity 320 ), a gallery ( capacity 90 ) and a stage measuring 10 x 6 metres or 60 square metres.
OLD MEETS NEW - BUILDING 4
This multi-storey building with modernistic architectural features consists of eight venues ranging in size from seating between 45 to 50 people per venue. In this building old meets modern in an architecturally pleasing manner. These air-conditioned venues can be sized to cater for your specific needs, as the furniture is movable.
ACACIA RESTAURANT - BUILDING 6
The orgiginal cafeteria was built in 1910 and its main features
include incredibly beautiful stained-glass windows that also feature Wilhelminian impressions.
The Acacia restaurant can accommodate 180 persons seated, but a cocktail setting will accommodate up to 300 people. It is ideal for champagne breakfasts, luncheons, theme dinners, gala banquets, exhibitions and cocktail parties. We can accommodate small parties in the Jacaranda Annex, which seats up to fifty, while cocktail-type functions cater for 80 people standing and, for a really intimate function, fifteen guests may look forward to a pleasant dining experience in the Lavender room around the fireplace.
Unisa's competent chefs compiled the menus and we can alter them to suit the client's own requirements, if the need arises. Our staff are all very experienced.
