Members of the TEQ consortium will meet at the University of Southampton (UK) to further discuss the design and realization of the TEQ experiment. In these regards, steps have been taken at a previous meeting at the University College London back in March when the participants defined preliminary experiments and manufacture of components.

Venue: seminar room 46/2001, Physics Building, Highfield Camups, University of Southampton
Accommodation: Participants book hotels directly. Recommended accommodation includes: Highfield House Hotel
Contacts: Professor Hendrik Ulbricht, +44 (0)23 8059 2073, e-mail:


We are located at the Highfield Campus at University of Southampton. See also the google map below. Both laboratories and offices are in building 46, the Physics building on Highfield Campus. Professor Ulbricht's office is room 3040, on level 3 in building 46.

Traveling by Car

Southampton is 75 miles (120km) from London. The M3 and M27 provide fast, direct access to the city. There is a Pay and Display car park for visitors, accessed from University Road. Please note that the car park can fill up very quickly during the morning and though there is parking available in the adjacent roads they tend to have a 2 hour maximum stay. There is also a car park directly at building 46 (Physics). We can sort a parking permit, if you inform us upon arrival.

Traveling by train

Fast trains from London and Bournemouth/Weymouth stop at Southampton Central and Southampton Airport Parkway. Trains from Portsmouth and Bristol/South Wales stop at Southampton Central. You can find details of routes and timetables on the National Rail website. National Express provides regular coach services to Southampton from central London, Heathrow, Birmingham, Bournemouth and the north. Southampton Coach Station is at Western Esplanade, in the city centre, close to the train station. Some coach services also stop at Highfield Campus. You can continue your journey to our campuses using our own unilink bus services or taxi. The unilink bus fare is £2 for a single or £3.50 for an all-day pass. Taxi fares from the city centre are usually £6-10, depending on the campus. Highfield Campus is three miles from Southampton Central, and two miles from Southampton Airport Parkway. unilink bus: U1
