All bookings will open on 9 March 2020.
The conference is based at Aberystwyth University and accommodation is in student Halls of Residence. You’ll have a lockable single bedroom (a small number of rooms with twin beds are available), and most rooms are ensuite. Each accommodation unit has shared kitchen and dining facilities. If your family or group fills the unit, this will be for your exclusive use — otherwise, you’ll share the kitchen and dining area with other conference guests. There are four types of accommodation, to suit all budgets, with extra discounts for families, young people, and those on a low income.
Flats are perfect for those on a budget, and are available from 7 to 10-berth. They offer single rooms (though 10-berth Flats have one twin), with shared bathrooms, toilets, kitchen and dining area.
Also known as ‘Rosser’, these 8-berth units offer an ensuite sink, toilet, and shower. Each kitchen has a sofa, and a dining table or breakfast bar.
Youth Flats are for those aged 16-22 and offer the same standard of accommodation as Flats. The Group Leader must be aged 18 or over and take responsibility for the care and wellbeing of all under 18s in the group. Unlike Camp, EMW does not act in loco parentis for 16 and 17 year olds at the conference. By booking, you agree to attend the meetings, be considerate to other guests, listen to the House Parents and remain quiet between 11pm and 8am. It is a University requirement that only those booked into a room may sleep in that room.
Newly-built, these generously sized single rooms have a double-bed, and an ensuite sink, toilet, and shower. Each kitchen/living area has sofas, a dining table and chairs, television and dishwasher.
This year we are able to offer a 5 or 6 room house each with one double room and 4 or 5 single rooms. Each house has a bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. There is a large kitchen on the ground floor.
Bursaries of £40 per adult (£30 for 16–22 year-olds) are available to help those on a low income. (T&Cs apply)
Prices are for self-catering and include accommodation and entrance to all the conference meetings. If you prefer a catered option, you can buy meals from the onsite restaurant.
Costs are per person, or per family. A deposit of £45 per adult/youth is needed at the time of booking, with the balance due by 1 July 2020.
