Directions to the University are available here. The Mathematics institute is in the Zeeman Building, which is number 37 on the map available here. Warning: The University of Warwick is not in the town of Warwick, but on the outskirts of Coventry - the correct train stations are Coventry or Leamington Spa (closer if coming from Oxford).
