AGT 2009 - Accommodation

The workshop will take place on the campus of the University of Warwick (online campus map / campus map in pdf), at the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP), in the building of the Warwick Mathematics Institute (number 35 on the campus map). Both on campus and off campus accommodation exists.

On-campus accommodation

On campus there are three hotel facilities:

as well as student rooms.

Prices vary from £90 to £125 for Radcliffe, Scarman House and Arden House (earlier information about cheaper rooms seems to be false). The rooms in Scarman, Radcliffe and Arden are of good three-star hotel standard. Facilities for families i.e. cots, highchairs etc. are not available at Scarman. Radcliffe House and Scarman House are two hotels conveniently located near to the Workshop venue. Arden House is a hotel located at the Westwood Campus, on the outskirts of the main campus. Since the Mathematics building is also at an outskirt of the main campus, it is a 10 minutes walk to any of those hotels.

Further, it is possible to book a student room for £35 (including breakfast, shared bathroom) or £55 (including breakfast, ensuite bathroom).

Bookings for Scarman, Radcliffe, Arden and student rooms should be made by calling the Warwick Conferences Sales Team on +44 (0)24 7652 3222, Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm, or email conferences@warwick.ac.uk. Note that the number of rooms is limited (in particular for Arden House) and other conferences take place during the same week as well.

Off-campus accommodation

Since the accommodation on the campus is very limited and often expensive, we're providing a list of hotels and guest houses (bed-and-breakfast) in four locations:

You can see the locations of the hotels on our accommodation map.

The list is for information only and does not imply recommendations. Also, the prices given should be used four guideline only and are subject to change.

Depending on your needs, you may prefer to stay either on the campus (typical price range £90 £125 and up), or in one of three neighbouring towns Kenilworth or Leamington Spa or Coventry. All towns are about 10-15 minutes ride from the campus by car or taxi, and convenient public transportation (frequent buses) is also available.

More offers (and sometimes better prices than when calling hotel directly) can be found at http://www.laterooms.com and http://www.coventry-hotels.co.uk.

Very informal recommendations: depending on your budget and mobility: if you are OK with spending around £90 £125 per night and staying on the campus then go for Radcliffe House on the campus, where you won't have problems with commuting and the quality is very good (incl. Internet connection etc).
Otherwise, go for any of the B&B and hotels in Kenilworth (first four have convenient access to public transportation; the other two would require the use of taxis or a car), or Victoria Park Hotel in Leamington Spa.


Kenilworth

Kenilworth is a small town close to the University of Warwick, perhaps best known for its beautiful ruins of Kenilworth castle. The town has a number of nice restaurant and pubs. The prices for the accommodation are in the range of £40-90 per night, depending on whether a hotel or a B&B is chosen. Kenilworth is about 5-10 minutes drive by taxi to the campus . There are local bus services (16/12/Unibus (U1/U2)) between Kenilworth and the University
