Getting to the University of Warwick
It is worth pointing out to people who are visiting for the first time that the University of Warwick is not actually in Warwick.
Coventry is the nearest mainline rail station.
There are a number of buses from outside the station to the central campus bus interchange. 12X is the fastest and most direct route, the 11 and 11U take longer. You can buy a ticket in advance, on your mobile, or on the bus (you need the correct change). More information on bus costs and times here.
If you are travelling by train within the Midlands, and using services operated by the Centrocard Scheme and Midland Metro, ask about a day card that covers the train and the bus (these are accepted on the buses to campus) they cost £8.50 for the whole return journey.
Information about travelling to campus can be found here.
Should you want to get to us by domestic or International flight, Birmingham International is one train stop before Coventry.
It is up to delegates to arrange their own accommodation if needed.
B&B on campus in Scarman, Radcliffe or Arden House can be booked here.
There are also plenty of hotels and B&Bs in Coventry, Earlsdon, Kenilworth, and Leamington Spa.
A list of some external accommodation options can be found here.
