Housing

EDUCAUSE has partnered with Experient’s housing bureau for convenient online hotel reservations. The Housing site will list the EDUCAUSE 2016 hotels and their distances to the convention center on a map of the area. You can narrow the list of hotels based on room availability, dates, price, or by specific hotel brand, and for each hotel you can access information about amenities provided, optional services, cancellation policies, and more.

The Housing site provides real-time information from the automated system about room availability and prevents overbookings. This reservation system provides equal and fair access to the available rooms and ensures that those attending EDUCAUSE 2016 will be able to reserve a room in the block.

Housing Advisory

Experient is the only official housing bureau for EDUCAUSE 2016. Any other company or travel agency contacting you is not affiliated with EDUCAUSE.

In some cases these companies claim to have hotel rooms at discounted rates, but when you arrive on-site the hotel does not have your reservation. As always, EDUCAUSE secures a housing block providing discounted and convenient hotel rooms to the EDUCAUSE event.

If you make reservations through any other organization, EDUCAUSE is unable to guarantee the validity of the reservation.
