* NEW, UPGRADED LOCATION: APPLETON TOWER - Concourse , School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, Central Campus, George Square, 11 Crichton Street, EH8 9LE

* How to get there: Map; The Appleton Tower is located on George Square at the Central Campus of the University of Edinburgh. Look for a massive building under construction -- that is the NEW School of Infomatics, otherwise known as the Forum. Appleton Tower sits right next to it (to the south). Enter Appleton Tower from the Crichton Street side. The Concourse (main Lobby) is on the 1st Floor.
