Accommodation

Those of you who have not booked we would recommend the following accommodation options to start as they will be the cheapest:

 

This is an off-campus accommodation option, but they have over 120 rooms available and are quite cheap. Single rooms are $98 / night and twin rooms (2 people) are $138 / night ($69 / person / night). If greater than 40 people book here, then breakfast will be included. To book, you can do so online through this link: https://app.mews.com/distributor/77a6d5b1-05f2-4df3-bcaa-af17003c0e3f?mewsAvailabilityBlockId=1882ff91-ea6d-4698-b35b-af1700381f89 While this is slightly farther from campus, it is very close to Londsdale Street (5-minute walk), where there are plenty of restaurants, pubs, and shops. It is also only a 20-minute walk to the Robertson Building where ANZSCPB will be held. If you would prefer less walking, there are two additional options. First, Canberra has several electric scooter ride programs, and scooters are distributed all over the city centre, are cheap to rent and will get you to the venue quickly. Second, the accommodation centre is also directly on Canberra’s Tram line (Ipima Street Station) which will take you to Alinga Street, and from there it’s a 10-minute walk.
