Low Cost Accommodation and Food at University Residence

CHATTcon attendees can stay in the brand new residence at the U of Washington for 2 nights (including breakfast and lunch) for significantly less than the price of 1 night in a Seattle hotel. You can stay for 2 night before and 2 nights after the conference if you want to explore Seattle.

These rooms are non-refundable, so book only if you know for sure you're going to attend.

The deadline to book without incurring a late registration fee is July 5, but the sooner you book the better to ensure that you get the room that you want. There are single and double rooms. If the single rooms are all booked you can have a double to yourself at a higher price.

If you want a double occupancy room, you'll be assigned a roommate of the same sex unless you each put the other's name in the registration form.
