You will need to book your own accommodation in York during the conference.
- There are a small number of bed & breakfast rooms available to book on campus: http://www.yorkconferences.com/events/venue/bed-and-breakfast-14.aspx.
- There is also plentiful hostel, hotel and B&B accommodation in the city centre. You can see the full range of options on the York city tourist information website: http://www.visityork.org/book/
Travel from York city centre to campus: The campus is 2 miles south-east of York city centre, so it is a pleasant 30-40 minute walk, or, alternatively, there are buses every 15 minutes from York to campus and back during the conference period. You can see bus route maps to and from the university here: https://www.firstgroup.com/york/routes-and-maps/route-maps . The conference venue is the Berrick Saul Building on Campus West and so the best bus to catch is the #66. The bus timetable for the #66 bus can be downloaded here.
City centre accommodation options which we think are good value include:
The Staycity Apartment Hotel is on the right side of town for campus, and so is on the bus route, or would be a shorter walk in to campus (20 minutes or so). Prices start from £25 per night if you book as part of a group of six and share, up to about £50 per night for two people sharing a studio. There is a ‘Co-op’ supermarket in the same building so you can buy your own food for breakfast and evening meals to reduce costs: https://www.staycity.com/york/
There are two ‘backpacker’ hostels in York, both more towards the centre of town, and thus a slightly longer walk to campus, or a short walk to the bus stops.
