  • Checking in on Sunday:
    Your rooms will be available from 2pm onwards. You need to go to the 24h reception and security desk in York House (see maps above) to check in and get your keys (and parking permit). You can check in as late as you like. Note that on Sunday there is not much activity on campus and there are no food outlets open. However, there is a nice pub about 6mins from your rooms next to the campus, The 'Swan Inn' (see Campus Map DOMAINS IX above). It offers not only a fine selection of beers (even Bavarian ones). The pub opens just for us on Sunday evening from 7:00pm (not 6:30 as announced earlier)!!!! Linda will do her pub style dinners (toasts,fish,jacket potatoes etc.). The pub guide writes:

  • Checking in on Monday:
    Your rooms will be available from 2pm. You can leave your luggage in a dedicated room (ask at registration desk and see `Instructions document' above). Car permits can be obtained from the Registration Desk. We recommend to check in before 5:30pm directly at the reception of your building depending on what accommodation you booked (see maps above). After that check in will be again via York House.
    Your first breakfast will be Tuesday morning in the Downs Restaurant, Bramber House.
  • Registration on Monday:
    Please go to the Arts C Building behind Bramber House (see maps). In the Foyer you will find the Registration Desk, open from ca. 8:45am. The conference room is nearby (Room C 133). The Registration Desk will also be open during breaks and lunch times. If you have any questions please ask the staff there.
  • Public Transport in Brighton
    For travelling between campus and Brighton we recommend the train which only takes 9minutes and a Cheap Day Return ticket costs around 2.70 GBP if you travel after 9am in the morning on weekdays (no restriction on weekends). There is also a frequent bus connection (Bus 25) to and from Brighton. On the bus a Day Saver Ticket is available for about 3.50 GBP that qualifies for unlimited travel in the city on a given day (See also `Detailed Instructions' above).
  • Walking, Hiking, Running
    Note that the campus, due to its proximity to the South Downs, offers great possibilities for walks and runs. When you arrive at your room you find a detailed `Welcome Package' with maps.
