Local Info

Location:

The CHEOPS meeting will take place on the main campus of Warwick University. Note that the nearest train station to campus is Coventry station, not Warwick train station. Information on visiting the University of Warwick can be found here, including travel directions and campus maps. The closest airport is Birmingham which has a regular train service to Coventry directly from the airport (the airport train station is connected to the terminals via a short skyrail). Warwick campus is then a short taxi ride from Coventry's train station. For those arriving in London, the recommended route is to take a train to Coventry, with the best connections offered from London's Euston train station. Buses are also available from the London airports but not as regular, see national express if you wish to consider these. Should you have any questions concerning your travel, please let us know (f dot faedi at warwick dot ac dot uk).

The meeting will take place in the Physical Sciences building (building #47 on the campus maps) which is part of the Faculty of Science. This is also where the Warwick Astronomy & Astrophysics group is based and is a short walk from the on-campus accommodation.

Accommodation:

Most of you are based in the the Scarman and Radcliffe hotels, centrally located on main-campus. These are full-service hotels with their own receptions desks where you can check-in and settle your accommodation bill. Breakfast is included and all rooms have wired ethernet. We suggest you bring a spare cable along as otherwise you may need to buy one and/or pay a deposit to borrow one. The reception desk can also help you with booking taxi's and general enquiries.

Campus Facilities:

All events on campus are a short walk from each other, and campus facilities include ATMs, post-office, supermarket, pharmacy and a number of other retail and food outlets, see the Warwick retail webpage for more information. Regular buses are available to Coventry and Kenilworth/Leamington and a taxi rank is located near the main campus bus stop.

Internet:

Wireless networks are available throughout campus via eduroam. If your institution supports eduroam, we strongly recommend you set this up, as you will then be able to connect anywhere on campus (and across an increasing network of institutions globally).
