Some final updates…

Hello all! The conference is rapidly approaching… here are some final updates for you.

1. Directions to the conference venue:

From the train station/ city center: Catch the 44 bus to the Heslington East campus. There are a few stops for this campus so you will have a few chances. The campus is well signposted and we will have some volunteers at the bus stop to help you find the Ron Cooke Hub. Once you’re in the Ron Cooke Hub, the registration table will be in the atrium. Volunteers will be wearing green name badges so feel free to ask them for anything you need.

By car: Please see for driving directions and parking instructions.

From the Heslington West campus you can catch the free shuttle bus to the Heslington East campus (or it’s a 15 minute walk between campuses).
