The Stepney Green and Mile End tube stations are at walking distance, and Mile End Road is served by a number of bus routes. The TFL Journey Planner provides all the information to reach the campus from different locations.
A map of the campus [PDF] is made available by the college. The poster presentations will be held in the Octagon in the Queen's building . The oral presentations will be held in the Skeel's Lecture Theatre in the People's Palace . Additional tutorial sessions will be held in the Electronic Engineering Department building.

From Wednesday the 18th onwards, the registration desk will be in the People's Palace foyer, accessible from the Queens' building front yard. See the map of the campus for additional guidance.
