Accommodation around Birkbeck
Maps of area around Birkbeck: http://www.bbk.ac.uk/bbk/maps.html
There are hundreds of hotels in central London, and many dozens within a short walk of Birkbeck (nearest tube stops: Russell Square; Euston; Goodge Street; Warren Street).
We don't arrange accommodation for conference participants, so you'll need to organise this aspect of the trip yourself. Since 2012 is the year of the London Olympics, we strongly recommend booking as soon as you've registered for the conference, to ensure you get a room at a reasonable rate. Below are some suggestions. Please contact the hotel for up-to-date quotes; best prices are usually obtained from the hotels’ own websites, but you could also check Expedia and Travelocity.
University College London (UCL) Residences offer both self-catering only accommodation (Astor College; Goldsmid House; James Lighthill House; Schafer House) and bed and breakfast accommodation, with the option of an evening meal (Ifor Evans Hall).
