Conference Housing will be available on the campus of Drew University in a residence hall. These rooms are arranged in suites, each with its own bedroom, common area and sink and shared shower and bathroom facilities. Each bedroom has the capacity for two people. Conference attendees do have the option to select either a single or a double room. If you would like to room with a specific person please note that we need permission from all parties to accommodate such requests. A limited number of rooms are equipped for people with disabilities. If you need disability accommodations, please indicate that on the Registration Form.
Parking is available on campus; the rate is $10.
For those who would like to make other lodging arrangements here are links which may be of assistance to you:
While the conference staff are unable to assist Conference attendees in finding alternative lodging, there may be faculty, students and/or staff at Drew University who are willing to host attendees in their homes. If you are interested, please email the Conference Co-ordinator at [email protected] and put Alternative Housing in the subject line. You will then be given access to a Google document where you can provide contact information and make your own arrangements. The Conference is not responsible for the details of any such arrangements that attendees make.
The Conference will have several students who will be providing transportation assistance to and from the Madison, New Jersey train station. If you would prefer to arrange your own transportation, information is provided below. Please note that we are unable to provide transportation assistance to or from any of the airports in the area, unless you are an international registrant.
If you are interested in ride-sharing to and from an airport, we have prepared a Ride Share document in which you can put your contact information and flight information to see who might have similar arrival and departure times. This way you might be able to make arrangements with others to share a ride.
If you will require transportation from or to the Madison, NJ train station, please let us know your flight information so that we may plan adequately.
