Name a Seat - Chapman Lecture Theatre

By making a gift of £250 (or £20 per month by Direct Debit) or more to the University, you have the opportunity to have your name, or the name of a select individual, with a short message on a seat in the Chapman Lecture Theatre, situated in the Chapman Building, a world class teaching and learning facility. Naming a seat is a fun or  touching way for you to help the University and others. Your support will ensure that we are able to extend our work and improve our educational, outreach, research and community activities.

To date, supporters have named a seat to mark weddings, birthdays, graduations, remembering colleagues, friends or loved ones; or just to provide an unusual gift.

Plaques will feature up to three lines of text, each with a maximum of 35 characters, inclusive of any names (including your own), spacing or punctuation.

By naming a seat you are continuing to shape and influence your University.

To mark your support you will receive:

  • A personalised plaque attached to the seat bearing your chosen message for the lifetime of the seat
  • Acknowledgement of your support on our website and in publications
  • A certificate with the name for your plaque and your message, for you to keep or give to the person you wish to recognise
  • And the vast array of materials that all of our friends, donors and supporters regularly receive

When making your donation, you can also choose which of our priority areas to support.
