Oxford Symposium on Population, Migration, and the Environment
Oxford Symposium on Population, Migration, and the Environment 


Accommodation costs are not included in the registration fees and participants must arrange their own accommodation. Below are suggestions for transportation and accommodation.

There are three major airports within 90 minutes of Oxford; London Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham International,all well-served by direct coach connections to Oxford.

The University of Oxford and its colleges have over 6,000 comfortable bedrooms, from the contemporary to the more traditional. Oxford Colleges offer accommodation on an individual basis, providing a unique opportunity to stay in a historic Oxford College room, eat in the college hall,  and wander through the college's gardens. These centrally-located rooms start at £50. Check availability and book online on the Conference Oxford website or the University Rooms website. Rooms typically become available closer to the requested date. Revisit the website if nothing is available now.

There are also several hotels and B&Bs a few minutes walking distance from the city centre.

Below is a selection of websites that give further information about less expensive places to stay in Oxford.

All are within walking or city bus distance from our Symposium site. City bus service is excellent. We do not recommend taxis; many Oxford streets are one-way and taxi fares may be excessive.
