On-site accommodation at St Catherine’s College is available at a subsidised rate when symposium registration is purchased as a residential package. The Residential package includes 2 nights accommodation for nights of September 25 and 26.
Should you wish to arrive earlier or stay later, arrangements have been made for delegates to purchase additional nights’ accommodation at St Catherine’s College, enabling ease and convenience for delegates to stay in the same place.
