If you wish to stay in another hotel, we have listed below, for your convenience, a few hotels in the Champaign-Urbana area. Please note that conference participants staying in other hotels are responsible for their own transport to the conference venue. Some information on transport options in Champaign-Urbana may be found here.

If you cannot stay in a hotel, we will try to match you with a graduate student who can offer a couch or extra bed. We will do our best to accommodate all who are interested, but we cannot guarantee that we can secure lodging for you this way. If you are interested in this option, please email us at
