AT Congress 2015 offers something that no recent congress has offered: the possibility of staying on the Congress Campus so that you can share the week with fellow colleagues and friends. We hope to have a real community feel to the event. We have secured a competitive rate for the accommodation, which includes breakfast, so staying on campus is a very attractive option. However, we do want you to feel you have a variety of choices and so have included details of hotels, hostels, guest houses and camping facilities in the area.

A note for those staying on campus: Breakfast is simple (toast, packaged cereals, fruit juice and fruit), and will be waiting for you each morning in your apartment. If you want anything more (eg oatmeal, muesli, eggs and so on), you can buy these from the campus shop, store them in your refridgerator, and use the cooking facilities in your apartment.
