Robinson College, Cambridge
Cambridge CB3 9AN
Robinson College is one of the newest additions to Cambridge University and has been one of the leading university conference venues in the UK. Just minutes away from the historical center you’ll be able to explore Cambridge and the surrounding areas. The average summer temperature in Cambridge is 60-70° Fahrenheit (15-21° Centigrade). Rain showers are also common in the summer so we suggest bringing an umbrella. Casual clothing is suggested.
Participants are housed in dormitory rooms. Rooms are furnished with one or two single beds and can accommodate one or two paid participants. Fans, sheets, pillowcases, blankets, towels, washcloths and soap are provided by Robinson College. Each room does have a private bath attached. There are no televisions provided in the rooms. Complimentary wireless internet is available in all buildings on campus.
Stansted Airport is approximately 40 minutes by road from Cambridge and Gatwick and Heathrow Airports are about 1.5 - 2 hours by road from the College. Buses from all these airports run regularly into the City Centre. Trains run directly to Cambridge from Stansted (35 minutes) and via London from Heathrow and Gatwick.
The fastest trains (the Cambridge Cruiser from King's Cross) take only 48 minutes. Cross country rail services link Cambridge with the Midlands and the North, via Birmingham. Organizers reccomend getting a train from London to Cambridge (this usually takes around 45 minutes). After arriving at the Cambridge train station, get a taxi outside to go straight to Robinson College. This should take around 15 minutes.

Child and Family Care Resources
FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC) website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that may assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management may also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns, if available. Please contact FASEB SRC staff with any special needs that they may have.
Please Note: Photographs or Video recording by attendees/speakers during any portion of a FASEB SRC conference is prohibited without prior written permission of the author/presenter, organizers and FASEB SRC staff.
