Information for Guests


On arrival SuperSTEM visitors must first register at the Daresbury Laboratory reception where one of our staff members will meet you and take you to the SuperSTEM building if this is your first stay.

Please note that on-site security requirements mean that you should have informed us well in advance of your intended visit.


On-site accommodation (basic, hostel style) is available at the Daresbury Laboratory Low Wood bungalow for £45 per person. Accommodation consists of 1 double, 1 single and 1 twin room. The twin room can be booked for single occupancy. Kitchen, lounge and bathroom are shared among occupants. A basic self-serve breakfast (cereal, toast, coffee, tea) is provided in the kitchen. Residents are allowed free use of the on-site Fitness Centre facilities provided they have undergone a health and safety induction. Contact the gym manager, Sarah Duberry on 01925 603928 or email DL Amenity Centre to book an appointment. On site you have access to Eduroam or, if you prefer, you can apply for STFC guest-wifi access upon your arrival at the site reception.

Please contact Dr D. Mücke-Herzberg on +44 1925 864909 if you wish to stay at the bungalow
