The all-inclusive price for 1999 will not exceed 550 pounds, covering B&B accommodation in an Oxford college, all courses and course materials, all lunches, and the banquet. A non-residential rate, which will not exceed 325 pounds, will also be available, but must be confirmed well in advance. Delegates that choose this option are responsible for finding their own accommodation. The Humanities Computing Unit WILL NOT be able to assist you with finding a place to stay. A limited number of places will be made available to members of Oxford University at a reduced cost.
Note that apart from the end of course banquet, an evening meal is not provided.
