Delegates are responsible for booking their own housing and transportation to MICS 2018. However, SMI does suggest the following for easing the transportation to Oxford:

  • Book flights into Heathrow Airport in London as you can connect with the Oxford Express bus which leaves directly from Terminal 5 and Central Bus Station
  • The Oxford Express bus runs all day. View the timetables and book tickets on their website.
  • Within Oxford, delegates can use the city bus. More information online here.
  • There are also trains that run from London to Oxford.

SMI encourages MICS 2018 attendees to make reservations without delay as housing is limited during the summer tourist season. There is no central hotel for the symposium, but there are a variety of housing options in and around Oxford’s city center.

SMI has negotiated a discounted rate at the Oxford Spires Hotel. About the Oxford Spires:

  • £175 per single occupancy room, includes VAT and breakfast
  • £185 per double occupancy room, includes VAT and breakfast
  • Members may contact Hannah Massey or Sian Malnati at oxfordspiresreservations @ and quote PREM180718 to secure these rates
  • Attendees will be asked for their credit card details to secure the room
  • Attendees will need to take bus service near the hotel to get to the city center; approx. 15 minute ride

Attendees can also look for third-party housing options through our Stay22 housing app below. SMI is not responsible for any reservations made through Stay 22 or Air BnB.
