University Center offers private dormitory-style lodging on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we encourage our guests to take advantage of these rooms while they are available!


For attendees on a tight budget, there is a hostel across the street from the conference location.

If you would prefer a traditional hotel room, there are many hotels in Downtown Chicago that are within walking or short public transit distance.
