Accommodation Advice:
We suggest that people book something as soon as possible, since York is a popular tourist destination. Most city centre accommodation is within half an hour's walk of the University, and there is good public transport available. The Visit York website (http://www.visityork.org/) is a good one for finding accommodation.
