Durham Training School

The 2018 training school for UTOPIAE will take place 2–6 July 2018 at Durham University. At registration it will be possible to book accommodation at Collingwood College, with the training school itself taking place in Earth Sciences.

Getting here

Details about how to get to Durham are available from the university website here.

Note: the free bus service from Durham Tee’s Valley airport has been dropped in the past. For those travelling by plane:

According to Durham ESRs’ experience, Newcastle is the bestest choice.

From Durham train station it is just about 5 min walk to Durham Bus station, from which You can take bus no. 6 which stops at “South Road Colleges”, near the accommodation site (see the map bellow).
