Getting to Nottingham

There are trams leaving from Nottingham train station (go upstairs) every 7 minutes. You want a tram in the direction of Toton Lane; get off at the University of Nottingham stop. You need to buy a ticket from the machine before you get on the tram. The trip takes about 15 minutes. People travelling from Loughborough might prefer to catch the train to Beeston train station and walk to the campus.

The Maths building is number 20 on the campus map. Talks are usually held in the Physics building, opposite the Maths building, number 22 on the map. The tram stop is the green circle on the map near the South Entrance. A nice place for lunch is the Lakeside Arts cafe (number 49 on the map, near the lake and tram stop).

Getting to Loughborough

Talks are typically held in the Schofield Building.

From the station, catch the Kinchbus Sprint to the university (every 10 minutes; £1.90 each way). Get off at "Computer Studies"; the Schofield Building is directly behind you. Alternatively, the university is 30-40 minutes from the station on foot.

Getting to Leicester

Talks are held in the Michael Atiyah Building.

Getting to Sheffield

Talks are held in the Hicks Building.
