We are working to make the Alternatives 2018 Conference as affordable as possible. The conference registration fee will include three buffet-style meals per day. College dorm rooms (with one or two single beds and private or shared bathrooms) will be available for an affordable price. The dining hall and all meeting rooms are ADA-accessible; some accessible dorm rooms can be reserved. There is a Metro stop on campus; parking is also available. There are multiple hotels a few Metro stops away (make your reservations early to lock in good prices).

Note: WIFI is available anywhere on campus. No password is necessary. guests can access it by turning on WIFI and looking for CuaGuest WIFI.

All meeting rooms and dormitory rooms have air conditioning.

The conference begins with dinner on Sunday, July 29, 2018 and goes through breakfast on Friday, August 3, 2018. Check in time is 2 pm and check out time is 10 am. You may stay at the University up to three days before and three days after the conference dates if you wish. The number of dorm rooms is limited and we expect them to fill up before the conference.
