The Cosener's House is on an island in the River Thames within the original grounds of Abingdon Abbey, located near the centre of the town of Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England. It is run as a conference centre[1] with accommodation by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). The annual UK Next Generation Networking meeting, Multi-Service Networks, takes place at Cosener's House every July.

The house takes its name from the Cuisinier or Kitchener, the person at the Abbey who was responsible for the provision of food.[2]

The building is Grade II listed.[3]
