Accommodations 

Because we are a student-run event, we are unable to offer delegates a dedicated accommodations team, although we will endeavour to assist if we can. Fortunately, Glasgow offers a number of hotels close to the venue and a range of public transportation options for delegates who are able to use buses, the subway, and/or trains.

A search on Google Maps for 'Scottish Youth Theatre' should show nearby hotels, such as Travelodge on Queen Street, Premier Inn on George Street, and the Brunswick (which is across the street from our venue). The neighbourhood of the Scottish Youth Theatre is known locally as Merchant City, which may help you when/if searching by specific neighbourhood(s).  

For delegates with accessibility needs, we have reserved a limited number of rooms at the Brunswick, a hotel located directly across (approximately 23 feet) from the venue. These rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. To arrange booking, please email us at hello@REIYL.com for instructions.
