If you would like to stay in Wolverhampton overnight, the most convenient
hotel is the Britannia:
To get to the Britannia from Wolverhampton railway station, walk out of
the station exit and continue straight ahead, over the bridge. Lichfield
Street is almost directly ahead: the large Britannia hotel is on the left
of the corner of the street, just 5 minutes walk from the station.
When you book, ask for the university discount - it should be about £60
for a night.

The University is in the centre of the city. These maps have the key
locations for the university - please print out the second one and bring
it along. Please report to MI block reception (the Technology Tower) or in
the refectory at 12 for lunch (MC block).
