Arrival Information

Dear SUSSP67 participant,

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Glasgow for the SUSSP67 Summer school on the 28th July 2011. On the arrival day (28th July) there will be no lectures as such, but there will be registration and a welcoming event. On arrival please first collect keys to your accommodation as explained below, and then go to the registration point to collect your conference pack and further information.

The rest of this entry contains information on the accommodation arrangements, meals, poster sessions etc.


The accommodation is at the University of Strathclyde Campus Village, which is in the city centre of Glasgow. The school is held on the same site. You will need to collect your keys from building 26 on the Campus Village Map. The address is:

Village Office

A larger map shows the position of Weaver Street. If you make it to Collins street however, the building is only a short walk from there. Bedrooms are available from 2pm onwards and rooms should be vacated by 10am on the  day of departure.

The reception desk is manned 24 hours a day, so there is no restriction as to when you must check in by. However if you expect to arrive late in the evening, please advise us of this. Once you have your keys you are free to come and go from the accommodation as you please. Access is 24 hours.


Registration will be at another building on campus on the afternoon of the 28th July, details will be available from the point at which you collect your keys. If you do not arrive in time for registration you will be able to register the next morning.
