All delegates to the Critical Thinking Academy will stay at St. John's College, Cambridge University. Delegates will be assigned to either single or twin-bedded rooms, each with central heating, wash basin, tea and coffee making facilities, shaving point, towels, and toiletries. A considerable number of rooms will have en-suite facilities and all rooms have views overlooking the College grounds. Otherwise, bathrooms, WCs and shower rooms are shared between two or three delegates. Rooms will be assigned randomly. A desk and reading light are provided in each room. Some ground floor rooms are available for delegates with minor disabilities. Delegates in wheelchairs will find difficulty manoeuvring through the Old Courts and should be accommodated.
Beds are made and the rooms serviced daily. The College has Tennis and Squash courts available for delegates' use for a small charge. The college doesn't supply equipment for activities.
Entry to the College should be made via the Cripps Porters' Lodge, Northampton Street entrance.
On the day of departure, checkout is 9:00 am.
Public telephones are located opposite the Cripps Porters' Lodge and phone cards can be purchased for the porter on duty. Anyone wishing to contact a delegate should call the telephone number allotted to the Conference Office. If an emergency arises, delegates should be contacted on (01223) 338600.
The Cripps Porter's Lodge is Manned for 24 Hours a day and porters are a great source of information — please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
The nearest first aid point to the Fisher building and the School of Pythagoras is the Cripps Porter's Lodge.
