STEM Centre in York University

You can find information on finding the venue here

 Where possible they recommend the use of public transport. The number 66 bus runs regularly from York Station to the JB Morrell library and a taxi rank is just outside the station. They have a free phone taxi phone in reception and advise booking taxis in advance.

 Please note their postcode YO10 5DD is for the University – if you’re using a satnav, enter Siwards Way (street name) or look for signs for the North Campus car park.

 Parking – The North campus car park is located infront of the National STEM Learning Centre. This is a pay and display carpark and costs £1 per hour or £6 for the day (free 18:00 – 8:00). It can get extremely busy during term time so we advise arriving early to get a space - although if arriving late afternoon on 22nd there shoudn't be so much of a problem.

 You can pay at the machine (a change machine is located at our reception) or using the RingGo app.
