A limited number of rooms has been set aside for Workshop attendees at TRIUMF House, the lab’s guest house for visitors. For details of rooms and rates, and to make a reservation, please go to the TRIUMF House Web site and click on RESERVATIONS. Note that some rooms are also available for the days immediately before and after the Workshop. The rates applicable are those for “TRIUMF visitors”. A 12% government tax applies to room charges.

When booking, on the reservation form, be sure to enter "FFAG'13" in the box "Travel Companion/Group", and to submit your request by August 19 to ensure availability; after that, reservations will not be restricted to FFAG’13 attendees.




TRIUMF House is located about 2 km north of TRIUMF – a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute bus ride. (The Translink no. 41 bus stops close to both and runs every 5-10 minutes during the working day).
See Travel for more information on buses.

TRIUMF House has a fully-equipped kitchen for use by residents, including cold and warm storage space. There is a cluster of restaurants and shops in UBC village (500 m to the north), and a coffee shop and sushi bar in Wesbrook village (halfway to TRIUMF). A wider selection of restaurants is available on 10th Avenue and on Macdonald Street (marked by red ovals on the map). Some that might be worth a visit include:

For those attending the Cyclotron Conference, bus transfer to TRIUMF House will be provided from the conference hotel on Friday, September 20, at a time to be settled following consultation during the conference.
