Accommodation Suggestions or WiGS Conference at Selwyn College, Grange Rd, Cambridge, 7th-8th November 2014 (thanks to Katie Stone for providing this useful document!)
Directions to Selwyn College (CB3 9DQ) can be found on the college website. Google maps and the Cambridge journey planner can be used to find exact walking/ public transport routes from the hotels to Selwyn.
Options for postgraduates: The graduates at Cambridge should be able to offer a few sofas, beds (or floor space!) for graduate attendees on a budget. If grads are interested in sharing twin or larger rooms in hotels, we have set up a Facebook group (‘Accommodation for WiGs 2014 in Cambridge’) so that you get in touch with each other. If you do not have a Facebook account, contact Katie Stone (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can coordinate on your behalf!
