Please note that the Registration package does not include accommodation. We have reserved several options with the Jury’s Inn. We have also reserved rooms with Cardiff University, which need to be booked separately with our Accommodation office. Bookings are available from one to four nights, in semi-ensuite and ensuite single accommodation. For details and the link to the booking sites see below.
Local Accommodation (Jury’s Inn)
We have been able to secure a preferential rate from the Jury’s Inn on Park Place (approx. 15 minutes’ walk from the conference venue). You can find details of the Jury’s Inn by clicking here. To take advantage of the Cardiff University rate (£82/night single occupancy, £92 double occupancy), please book either by phoning Central Reservations at +44 (0) 161 7443179, or emailing them at JurysInnCardiff@jurysinns.com. You will need to state that you are attending the ‘BAVS 2016: Consuming (the) Victorians’ conference at Cardiff University (31 August to 2 September 2016). Please note that there are a limited number of rooms available, so we advise booking as early as possible.
University accommodation is available via special booking on a bed and breakfast basis from 30 August – 3 September 2016. If you wish to book rooms before 30 August or after 3 September, please contact us so we can confirm whether accommodation is available. Both Colum Hall and Aberconway Hall are adjacent to the conference venue.
The BAVS rooms reservation with Cardiff University’s Accommodation Office will end on Thursday, 11 August. After that point delegates who wish to book a room on campus need to contact the Accommodation Office directly rather than going via the link provided:

Key pick-up information for University accommodation:
As the majority of you are arriving on either the 30th or 31st August, the university has amended the opening times for reception for Colum and Aberconway Halls so that you can pick up your keys earlier and place your luggage in your room. The times are now as follows:
TUESDAY 30TH AUGUST – OPEN FROM 09.00-22.00
WEDNESDAY 31ST AUGUST – OPEN FROM 09.00-13.00 AND FROM 15.00-22.00
COLUM AND ABERCONWAY HALLS
Keys for those staying in Colum and Aberconway Halls can be collected from North Campus Reception, Colum Drive.
Reception is open every day from 09:00 – 11:00 then again from 15:00-22:00. Keys are available for collection after 15:00.
If the office is closed, then guests should wait till it opens again.
On the 30th of August the office will be open from 08.00-17.00. If there are any emergencies and our office is closed, then security should be called on 029 2087 4444. They will, if necessary, get in touch with the on-call residence manager who will then deal with any issues.
Reception at Talybont is staffed until 9.45pm. If guests arrive at Talybont after this time, they will need to telephone security on 029 2087 4444 so that a member of the team can come and issue the keys. If they can come and collect their keys before 9.45 then so much the better.
All keys for Talybont will need to stay at Talybont and be collected from there.
Colum Hall – £28.91 per night to include breakfast
Single bedrooms with en-suite facilities.
Aberconway Hall – £26.90per night to include breakfast

We would suggest that you book as soon as possible in order to reserve these rooms as the demand for these is anticipated to be high. Please read the terms and conditions of booking regarding refunds before you confirm your booking. Further information on the residences is available on the booking page, BAVS2016.
