Venue - Queen Mary, Mile End Campus

The CHAOS09 conference will take place in the People’s Palace, on the Mile End Campus of Queen Mary, University of London. The Mile End campus is historically the home of Queen Mary College, which began life in 1887 as the People's Palace, a philanthropic endeavour to provide east Londoners with education and social activities. It was admitted to the University of London in 1915. The Mile End Campus is located in the Borough of Tower Hamlets between The City and Canary Wharf, a multicultural and socially diverse area that is one of the most rapidly developing parts of London. Queen Mary is the London research-focused university closest to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, only two miles from the Mile End Campus.

Conference venue (Queen Mary, Mile End Campus)

Queen Mary is a multi-faculty university about 15 minutes east of Central London. It is on a campus site bordered by Regents Canal and close to Docklands.

The venue is easily accessible by public transport. It is within a five minute walk of both Mile End Underground station (Central, District, and Hammersmith & City lines) and Stepney Green Underground station (District, and Hammersmith & City lines).


Arrival by Underground

Mile End (Central, District, Hammersmith and City Lines) and Stepney Green (District, Hammersmith and City lines) stations are both less than five minutes walk from the Mile End campus. For instructions on how to reach these Underground stations from airports or Waterloo International Eurostar terminal, see: Arrival.

From Mile End station, turn left and cross Burdett Road and Mile End Road at the traffic lights, continue along the Mile End Road until you reach the College buildings on the right. From Stepney Green, turn left out of the station, cross Globe Road and continue along Mile End Road.

Car Parking

No car parking will be available. Cars parked on the campus are likely to be clamped and a removal fee payable. The nearest pay car park is over a mile away, and local street parking is not recommended. Delegates are strongly recommended to arrive by public transport.
