Welcome to Stavanger and to the international conference Promises of Monsters 28. & 29. April!
The main conference venue is at the University of Stavanger, in Kjell Arholms house. The Thursday evening event, Monsters in Art, is at Sølvberget Library and Cultural Centre in the heart of the city. The conference dinner is a few minutes walk from there, at the restaurant Allegro.
The Airport Bus is a shuttle-service between Stavanger city centre and Sola Airport. The bus stops on demand, but also announces the central hotels along its route to the city.
To /from the university:
The bus station is the central hub for transportation in Stavanger. From the bus station, the following bus routes can be taken directly to the UiS: 6, 7, X60 and X90. We recommend the X60, it’s the quickest one, and leaves every 15 minutes from bus stop 18.
You can buy tickets in advance, on the bus, or in a phone app. We recommend the latter; it’s easy and cheaper. Read more about time schedules, ticket purchases and prices here
Unfortunately, there are no direct buses from the airport to the University campus. You can get the airport bus to the stop called Madlakrossen. From there, local buses 6 and 7 will go to the university. A taxi from the airport to UiS will cost approximately 300 NOK.
The main conference venue is at the University of Stavanger, in Kjell Arholms house. The bus stops right outside the venue. The venue is accessible to all.
