Accommodation Option 1: Imperial College Specially Negotiated Hotels

As a courtesy to our delegates, we are pleased to offer access to discounted hotel group room rates to assist with travel planning. Delegates can take advantage of specially negotiated rates provided through the university.

Imperial College London is situated in one of the London's finest locations, adjacent to such landmarks as The Royal Albert Hall and the Science, Natural History, and Victoria & Albert Museums, with Harrods and Hyde Park just a short walk away.

As such, there are many different hotel options in the area. Conference delegates can choose accommodations from one of Imperial College's local hotel partners who have been carefully selected with specially negotiated rates* to ensure you the best value.

Once you've decided on a hotel, you may complete an enquiry form (located on bottom left of the Imperial College hotel options web page), or email the reservations team directly.

*Please note that hotel reservations are made through Imperial College directly and not through the conference.

Accommodation Option 2: Imperial College Onsite Housing

As a courtesy to our delegates, we are pleased to offer on-site accommodation at Imperial College’s halls of residence to assist with travel planning. If you will be taking advantage of this option, please remember to book early as the rate changes and will no longer be offered after the block is at capacity.

Imperial College London Onsite Housing rates change on a daily basis, ensuring they remain competitive with other accommodation providers in the area.
