Fourteen rooms have been reserved in the new dormitory on campus. Room
arrangements are as had been previously established.
You must book these rooms yourself. Call 613-533-2223 (try to talk to Todd),
or email email@example.com with the following information:
Let me know if there are complications.
- your name (they should have the name of the person with whom you will be
sharing a bathroom, but you may wish to double-check);
- a credit card, either Visa or Mastercard;
- your mailing address and home phone number;
- the nights you plan to stay;
- the name of the event: "Meeting on Nonlinear Control Theory and its
Getting here by train: There are trains that run fairly regularly
between Toronto and Kingston and between Montreal and Kingston. See the VIA Rail Canada website to check schedules
and make reservations.
Once you get off the train, get a taxi to take you to "Stuart Street
Residence at Queen's." This should suffice for the cab driver. If not,
then the address is 194 Stuart Street.
Getting here by car: I assume everyone driving will arrive via Highway
401. Take the exit for Sir John A. MacDonald Blvd. Follow Sir John
A. MacDonald almost until you get to the lake, then turn left onto Union
Street. (If you end up in the parking lot of the Kingston Penitentiary, then
you have gone one block too far.) Drive on Union for several blocks. Turn
right onto University Avenue. Drive to the end of University Avenue, then
turn right onto Stuart Street. Stuart Street is quite short, so you cannot
lose once you have found it. The residence is on your left, and the address
is 194 Stuart Street.
I presume you can check in, and they will give you information on parking.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Items of interest on campus:
Items of interest off campus:
- The residences are on Stuart Street, which is near the bottom of the
campus map. They are located at 58 on the campus map, I think.
- Talks will be held in Jeffery Hall, which is on University Avenue, and
is number 77 on the campus map. Talks are in Room 234, which is one floor
down from the ground floor. Signs will be posted to direct you to the room.
Avert your eyes from the horrible ground floor decor.
- There are cafeterias in Mackintosh-Corry Hall (number 78 on the campus
map) and the John Deutsch University Centre (number 14 on the campus map).
You can get coffee here, although we will also have catering of some kind
(yet to be arranged).
- There is a decent cafe, called Coffee and Company, on the corner of
Division Street and Johnson Street. This is the closest place to get
espresso, as far as I am aware. It is about a seven minute walk from
Jeffery Hall. The preceding was not a paid commercial announcement, although
it might have appeared to be.
- Nearby restaurants are located around the corner of Princess Street and
Barrie Street (a couple of places here) and in the downtown area, which is
roughly in the region whose boundary is formed by Princess, Clergy, Johnson,
and Ontario Streets. There are lots of good places in the region closer to
the lake (i.e., closer to Ontario Street).
