(see map); if you want to avail of these, please indicate so on the registration form under "Special Requirements" but allocation will be on a first come, first serve basis. Please note:
If you will be staying in the Elms Halls breakfast will be provided not in the halls but in the Students Union on the main campus (see map). This is just a few minutes from where all the talks will be held.
If you will be staying in the Elms Halls you cannot avail of the shuttle service which only serves Stranmillis College. However there will be transportation provided to the Elms Halls after the Conference Dinner on Wednesday night.

Deadline for booking en suite accommodation:    22 March 2004.

Deadline for refund of booked accommodation which is not taken:    1 April 2004.

There is a number of Bed&Breakfast Guest Houses as well as more upmarket hotels in the vicinity of the University; see here for a listing.  Note, however, that the World Irish Dancing Championships are held during the same week so it may be difficult to find reasonably priced accommodation near the conference venue.

If you have any special needs, may require childcare during the conference, or need any assistance in finding appropriate accommodation, please indicate this on the registration form in the "Special Requirements" field. Thank you.
