Conference Centre Accommodation

UbiComp 2004 takes place at the East Midlands Conference Centre, based at the University of Nottingham. On-site accommodation has been reserved at Cavendish Hall for delegates at a special rate of £47 for ensuite single rooms with bed and breakfast. This rate also includes free of charge use of the University's adjacent sports resources, with swimming pool, fitness centre, and facilities for squash, tennis, badminton, table tennis and snooker.

The hall surrounds a lawn quadrangle with its own rose garden, and is reached via a bridge over a grass moat. A short walk brings guests to the University boating lake with its surrounding leafy paths - all extremely picturesque and romantic.
