22nd Biennial New Chaucer Society Congress, Durham 2020
Nearly all of the Congress events will take place at the new Teaching and Learning Centre on South Road.
If you zoom in on the map below, you will see South Road just to the south of the river. On the corner between South Road and Stockton Road is the Bill Bryson Library (the University's Main Library). The TLC is on the opposite side of South Road from the Library, almost directly across from the Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics.
All of the academic sessions will be held at the TLC. Otherwise, there are just a few events in the buildings around Palace Green: in particular, a concert at the Cathedral, and a dinner will at the Castle. The congress's "social hub" will be at Collingwood College (just a stone's throw from the TLC), where delegates will be offered hatch-service meals in the dining-hall, and where they will have access to the college bar. Over 350 rooms are currently being held for NCS delegates, either at Collingwood College or at one of its near neighbours, Grey, Van Mildert or St Aidan's. The TLC and these colleges are all about 10–15 minutes' walk from Palace Green and the city centre.
There are also 80 rooms being held for delegates at the Marriott hotel (about 10–15 minutes from the TLC) and another 30 at the Radisson (about 15–20 minutes).
