Conference accommodation is no longer available.

Preferential rates have been obtained at both Univeristy-owned and non-University accommodation, at various locations nearby.  Availability permitting, you are also welcome to bring partners and/or to book additional nights stay (at extra cost).  We reccommend that bookings are made before 29 Feb where possible, before our reserved quota of rooms is reallocated.

University-owned accommodation

Many University-owned rooms, within close proximity of the conference centre, have been reserved for conference delegates for the nights of 21 and 22 March, 2016.  Please book by following this link to Edinburgh First

Update: 10/3/16:  Our previously ring-fenced rooms on the University campus have now all been re-allocated to the general public.  Therefore, if you search Edinburgh First's accommodation using our special discount code, "BLCS16", you will find no rooms available at the preferential delegate rates.  However, a search without the discount code will show the full remaining availability (but without our discounted rate applied).  Please contact Edinburgh First directly to ensure that you obtain the discounted delegate rate on any remaining rooms.
