Those wishing to attend both days have two main options for lodging:


The first is SpringHill Suites by Marriott, located across the street from campus. The price, which includes parking, is $144.36 after taxes. To receive this rate, attendees must use this link. To guarantee this rate online, attendees must book by April 30th After that, attendees will need to call and book over the phone to receive this rate. Here are some key details:

  • Parking in the garage next to the hotel is free with room booking. Attendees can park either on the first or fifth floor of the garage.
  • Accessible rooms are available with this block, but attendees must call 24 hours after booking to make note of the need for an accessible room (757-423-4100).
  • This conference rate is available for both Thursday and Friday nights.


The second is the student dormitories option. There are only a limited number of rooms so this option should be pursued as soon as possible—there are no rooms guaranteed to attendees. This option is more central to the conference activities and is more affordable, running approximately $35-45 per night, plus $7 for parking per day.
