What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We are sorry that we cannot offer parking at Queen's University Belfast due to the event being held during term time. However small school buses may enter for disembarking and collection though the entrance to the Main Campus on University Square (requires prior arrangement with the organisers).
