Hotel and Travel


Reservations within the hotel block can be made upon registration for the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference within the registration platform. You can reserve your hotel room during registration or at a later time by logging back into your registration dashboard. EDUCAUSE has partnered with Maritz Global Events for convenient online hotel reservations. The Housing site will list the EDUCAUSE 2021 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 2021 will be able to reserve a room in the block.
