is located on two different sites: about 1.5 Km from the School location, and
very close to the School.
Participants should deal directly with the university's accommodation services,
not with the Summer School organisers.
The most convenient inexpensive residence is
Hall. These are student rooms, around £25 to £35 per night,
on campus, about 5 minutes walk from the lecture hall.
This is booked by contacting the Hall Secretary directly;
the Crombie Johnston contact page.
If you indicate that you are attending
the "Humour Summer School", the administrators may be able to allocate
a room near to other participants in the School.
King's Hall is a better grade of room, about £50 per night,
adjacent to Crombie Johnston. To book a room here, use the phone
or email contact details on the
Visitor Accommodation page.
There are further student rooms at
a general student residence, again
for about £25 to £30 per night, but this is about 15-20 minutes walk from the
School location (with buses every half hour).
the standard campus map shows a completely incorrect location
for Hillhead Halls: it is not where the item (1) is displayed (although
a number 20 bus can take you from that location to Hillhead Halls
for 70 pence).
Places at Hillhead Halls can be booked by calling (+44) 1224 274000
or by e-mailing Hillhead.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are booking at Hillhead Halls, indicate that you are attending
the "Humour Summer School", as we have a provisional allocation of
rooms for this event.
Hotels and guesthouses
There are many hotels and guesthouses around the city
a sample list of guesthouses or consult a general guide at
Visit Scotland). There are a small number
of bed-and-breakfast guesthouses very near the university, on King Street
(the campus is roughly alongside street numbers 500-600 on King Street).
