For those being accommodated by the Academy, the accommodation will be in Selwyn College, which is a short walk from the lecture theatres at the Maxwell Centre. A number of rooms have been reserved at a discounted rate. These are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so applicants are encouraged to register early.

Accommodation in the Old Court of Selwyn College will be in student study bedrooms; bathroom facilities are shared. The Hall, where breakfast will be served is located within the Old Court.

A number of rooms have been reserved in Ann's Court. This is a recently-built (2005) court which has spacious bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Ann's Court was purpose-built to accommodate conference delegates and it is adjacent to the Old Court (where meals will be served in the Hall). The rooms have views over Selwyn's private landscaped gardens.
