Hotels and Accommodation
The block at our conference hotel, Courtyard Marriott Downtown, is full. There are three hotels in the campus area and many options downtown. If you are researching hotels on your own, look for proximity to the Green Line lightrail. The conference venue is located at the West Bank station.
