Lodging and Meals

Reservations received after Thursday, June 7, 2007 will be charged a $25.00 late fee (includes tax) and only processed on a space available basis. This late fee is not included in the prices shown below.

We are pleased to offer on-campus housing for KWDS attendees in dorm rooms in McMahon Hall, a short walk from the event facilities.

We expect that, especially when taking the value of meals into account, it will be very hard to find a lower-cost alternative at any reasonable distance from the site.

Lodging details

All rooms are furnished with twin beds, a small fan, Ethernet access, and a local-access telephone with voice mail (long-distance calls may be placed using a credit card or prepaid calling card). Residence halls are not air-conditioned, but average Seattle temperatures for this weekend are only 72ºF high, 55ºF low; the record high is 93ºF and the record low is 47ºF.

Bed linen, towels, soap and drinking cups are provided. Desk lamps can be checked out at the Conference desk.

Rooms share community bath facilities. Occasionally the appropriate bath facility will be located one floor above or below your room. Laundry facilities are available in each building. Television lounges and kitchenettes with microwave ovens are located on most floors.

Residence halls offer a smoke-free environment. Smoking is prohibited in all University areas, including in private sleeping rooms. 

Meals are a required part of the lodging package per the site, but offer a significant convenience. Couples housing is limited and based upon availability. A late fee of $25.00 will be charged for reservations received after June 7. Additional details can be found on the registration form.

More information about the accommodations can be found on the UW Conference Services web site.
