All students are asked to report to their meeting point location where they will be greeted by members of the team.

The transport drop-off point is to the rear of the Hall as indicated on the map, adjacent to the conference car park. Drivers are asked to use the area immediately behind the Hall as a turning circle and the gates will be opened to facilitate this. Please note that in the interests of the safety of our students and other park users there is no vehicle access to the Animal and Equine Studies Centre and no parking / drop off outside the facility.

Students who are parking all day should use the Visitors Car Park (off Muirhead Avenue, L11 1EH).

Although there is a take-away food service available on-site and vending facilities for drinks and snacks, students are encouraged to bring a packed lunch. This will support the maintenance of the ‘bubbles’ that are in place to protect students and staff as per Covid guidelines.
