In 2011 BiCon is being held at the University of Leicester's Oadby Campus from 1st – 4th September 2011
We will be based at the Oadby Campus (links to a PDF map) just off Manor Road using Stamford House, Stamford Hall dining room and Shirley House, and the Lasdun, Bowder Court and John Foster flats (see the Access Report for more details). Oadby is a quiet leafy suburb only two miles from Leicester city centre and Oadby campus is a 40 acre site, complete with beautiful landscaped grounds. The campus is an enclosed space, and very peaceful and secluded. The site is very compact and all BiCon rooms and accommodation should be within a five minute walk.
The address of the BiCon venue depends on which bit you want, even though the university refers to the area as 'Gilbert Murray and Stamford Hall'. So whether you want to tell the taxi driver where to go, set the sat nav, or book a supermarket delivery, the addresses are:
Stamford House (registration desk plus some daytime sessions and evening entertainments) and Lasdun (standard accommodation):
Stoughton Drive South
Bowder Court (main en suite accommodation):
Gilbert Murray Hall
John Foster Hall (some adapted accommodation):
