Participants who have booked accommodation will be provided with en suite facilities in our student village on the university's John Anderson campus. Unfortunately we cannot provide accommodation outwith the conference period. Glasgow is well provided with hotels and hostels to suit any budget and you might find what you want on-line at peoplemakeglasgow.com/findahotel
The John Anderson campus is about a 20 minute drive from Glasgow airport, although during the rush hour it can take considerably longer.
There is a frequent bus service (the Glasgow Shuttle) from the airport to Buchanan Street Bus Station (see campus map), from where the campus is a 10 minute walk: the bus ride is usually almost as quick as taking a taxi. A single ticket currently costs £7.50 and an open return £10.00. Tickets can be purchased online, or on the bus.
Discounted taxi fares are available for delegates for journeys between Glasgow Airport and the City Centre with Glasgow Taxis: pre-book your taxi by phoning +44 (0) 141 429 7070 and use the code CM7 (Glasgow Airport to City Centre) or CM5 (City Centre to Glasgow Airport) to get a set fare per journey of £21 (saving you approximately 10% on the standard fare).
Both Central and Queen Street Railway Stations are within 10/15 minutes walking distance of the campus, or alternatively a short taxi journey (c. 5 minutes).
If you are arriving by taxi, ask the driver to drop you on Collins Street (off Cathedral Street) and walk to the Village Office (for accommodation) or the John Anderson Building (to register) from there.
Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the campus from the 'WifiGuest' network, which should appear on the list of available networks on your portable device. This network uses the same authentication system as 'The Cloud' network found in public places across the UK. You can log in to 'WifiGuest' using existing 'The Cloud' credentials, or set up a new account which you can then use wherever 'The Cloud' is available. More comprehensive internet access will be available to eduroam users.
Food and Drink
Most of your meals will be provided but you may want to take the opportunity to visit the local area for food and drink.
Lying just south of the campus, the Merchant City area offers a wide range of coffee shops, restaurants and bars.
For pubs, we particularly recommend Babbity Bowster (Blackfriars Street), Blackfriars (Albion Street) and the Drygate brewery (Drygate).
There is also a bar in the Lord Todd building next to the dining room.
