Option 1: WIT Campus Accommodation

This includes single rooms in the 3-, 4- and 5-bedroom apartments within WIT Residence. There is a limited availability of double rooms and twin rooms, but we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment. If travelling with a family or young children, you will be offered a 3-, 4-, or 5-person apartment exclusive to your family. If you are travelling alone or with colleagues, you can request to have your single rooms be in the same apartment so you can share the social spaces.

60 of these bed spaces, including 3 suitable for disabled access, are located directly on the Main WIT Campus (in the College Fileds) which is also the official venue for IFCO 2014 Conference. Another 320 rooms will be at the Manor Village within a five-minute shuttle bus ride or a ten minute walk from the Main Campus.

Rooms will be available to book from Sunday 24th August until Saturday 30th August. If you are checking out on Friday, 29th August, the final day of the conference, you can check out after the final conference event (i.e. up until 6pm). If you are checking out on Saturday, 30th August, you can check out anytime before 12pm noon. 

Each apartment has its own fully equipped kitchen and single en suite rooms. Amenities also include:

  • 24-hour reception
  • A Games Room (for people staying at Manor Village)
  • A laundry service
  • Internet access (you will need a cable)
