Hotel and Travel


EDUCAUSE has partnered with Experient’s housing bureau for convenient online hotel reservations. The Housing site lists the EDUCAUSE 2017 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 2017 will be able to reserve a room in the block.
