The conference for all 11-19 mathematics teachers

2-4 July 2020

University of Bath


The Quads

Full-time delegates and those booking bed and breakfast for individual nights will be accommodated on the University of Bath campus. Rooms will be located within The Quads, which has 703 single en-suite rooms arranged in flats for eight to ten people around communal kitchens. There is a large communal social space, with two flats sharing a communal lounge. Lime Tree bar, café and food court is part of The Quads.

We will try, as far as possible, to locate delegates from the same institution in rooms close to each other. If you have any special requests, please let us know when registering and we will try to accommodate them.

The nearest car park to The Quads is East Car Park.

You can take a virtual tour of a single en-suite bedroom and a shared kitchen in the Quads (decorative items in this image not included).

You will be able to collect your room key from the accommodation check-in desk, which will be in Chancellors’ Building during peak conference times.

You will be required to vacate your bedroom by 10am on your day of departure.

Visit DisabledGo for detailed information on the accessibility of The Quads.

Please inform MEI prior to arrival, preferably when you first book, of any additional needs you have, including special arrangements that need to be put in place for the unlikely event of an evacuation.

Wednesday and Saturday night accommodation

Bed and breakfast accommodation for the night of Wednesday 26 June is available for those who would find it more convenient to arrive the night before the conference. This is also available for the night of Saturday 29 June, for those who would prefer to leave the day after the conference ends. These options are available to book at the time of registration.

Please note that the University of Bath is unable to provide an evening meal on either Wednesday or Saturday, so delegates staying on either of those nights will need to make their own arrangements. Information on eating and drinking in Bath can be found on the visitBath website.
