Getting Here

Conference Venue

The University of Warwick is located approximately three miles from the centre of Coventry (not in Warwick). General information about how to get to the University, including transport links from airports and surrounding residential areas, can be found here.

Information for international visitors can be found here.

The conference itself takes place in the Cowling Room, in the Social Sciences building.

Below is a map of central campus with the most relevant areas clearly marked (you can also download it following this link). You can also find the interactive map of the campus here.

Travel by Train

There are two ways of getting to campus. The first is by travelling to Coventry. There are number 12 and 11 buses from Coventry railway station. Remain in the station and take the outside steps by the car park to the bus stop. These run roughly every 15 minutes, cost between two and three pounds and will take you to the University in about 15 to 20 minutes. Please note that exact change is needed on this service.

Alternatively, you can travel to Leamington Spa railway station and then taking a U1, U2 or number 11 bus to the University. These buses are equally frequent and a little over three pounds for a return journey. Again, please note that the number 11 requires passengers to have exact change. With the main entrance to Leamington station behind you, cross the road towards the opposite corner, and walk towards the overhead railway bridge, past the old pub on the corner. The bus stop is easy to see and anyone can direct you. It takes between 20 and 30 minutes and it is clear when you have arrived on Campus.

Travel by Car

If you are travelling by car, take the A46 to Coventry from the motorway. Do not turn off at Leamington Spa or Warwick – the University is located on the outskirts of Coventry. Follow signs for Warwick Arts Centre (our cinema and theatre complex), which is clearly signposted about one third of a mile before the turn off. At the turn off, stay in the left hand lane which takes you left only. Keep following Arts Centre or University signs for the next 10 minutes and you will arrive at the Warwick campus. There are various pay-and-display car parks available.


There is a taxi rank on central campus, next to the bus interchange.
