A cloakroom will be available for scholars free of charge. Please try to bring only baggage that you require for the day as space is limited.
You will find the cloakroom to the right of the Capital Hall, on level 0.
Please note that although there is a cloakroom on site for scholars to use (free of charge), they will not accept laptops or any large electronic equipment. If you bring a laptop you will be expected to keep this with you at all times. The venue takes no responsibility for expensive electronic equipment left inside bags in the cloakroom, so you should keep it with you.
