Practical Information

Maps of York showing the location of the university campus can be obtained here and here. Goodricke College is building 24 on the campus map. Here is the map of car parks on campus - Campus South
and West car parks are convenient, and are Pay & Display at £2 per day. The taxi fare from the railway station is around £5. Buses are supposed to be every 15 minutes, but can be rather random -- sometimes one has to wait half-an-hour. The station is on the north-west side of York while the campus is about a mile and a half south-east of the city centre: the walk takes about 35 minutes. Train information can be obtained from Railtrack.

There will be a small registration fee of £5 which will include coffee/tea and lunch.

Funds are available to help with postgraduate students' travel expenses, though these
should be matched by support from departments/RTSGs.
Please email Niall MacKay in advance if you would like to apply for support --
and please book early to take advantage of the cheaper train fares.
