MIC is a social enterprise providing quality budget hotel services and meeting facilities. The business supports international and home students studying in London, providing affordable accommodation, in a multi-cultural, multi-faith environment.
Founded in 1950, the centre was originally known as Methodist International House and was based in Bayswater, West London. Our founder was Hilda Porter, a Methodist Missionary, who started the organisation after returning to post-war Britain from the Far East, upon discovering that London did not really offer a secure environment for foreign students to live whilst studying in the Capital.
Since 1998 we have occupied Euston House, a handsome building in Euston Street just a few minutes walk from Euston station. We continue to house over eighty students from all over the world, studying over 20 disciplines in some of the best colleges in London.
In addition, we operate a 100-bedroom AA 4-star guest accommodation. Each room is a double en-suite with LCD tv, climate control, tea/coffee facilities, Broadband access, hypo-allergenic bedding, safe, hair dryer and double glazed VELUX windows. Also, half of our rooms can be turned to twins, two are triples and two more are adapted for those staying who may have mobility challenges.
From a conference perspective we offer 17 meeting rooms of various sizes. From 120 delegates to 2, we can accommodate a wide variety of meetings, seminars, training courses and AGMs. The rooms all come with basic AV equipment and we can provide PA systems, laptops, projectors and teleconferencing facilities.
Our Atrium Lounge is a perfect area to relax, catch up on some e-mails or have a 1-to1 meeting over a coffee and light snack. It is adjacent to the Atrium Restaurant which serves a varied hot buffet to our conference guests.
It is also where breakfast is served and in addition we can accommodate private dinners for up to 100 guests. Overall, MIC is a great place to come to in London for your leisure or business needs. In addition, as a Member of our Club, you will receive a substantial discount on accommodation, meetings (if you are a private company), and food and drink from the Atrium. With membership, you will also be free to enter MIC and use the Atrium lounge to meet business contacts or spend some time in comfort while you wait for the train.
To provide hospitality to guests in a welcoming and Christian environment.
We will strive for excellence in everything we offer at the Methodist International Centre based upon our commitment to Christian values. We will seek to enhance our provision for students and guests.
