Practical Information
Maps of York showing the location of the university campus can be
obtained hereand here. Mathematics
is in Goodricke College (see the campus
map); the Physics department is adjacent. (Note that due to building work, access to PL002 is only via the external firedoor, along the lakeside path from Goodricke and around the far entrance to the Physics building.) Here is the list
of car parks on campus. The taxi fare from the railway station is
around
£7. Buses (no.4) are every 10 minutes. The station is on the
northwest side of York while the campus is about a mile and a half
southeast
of the city centre: the walk takes about 35 minutes.
