We think being here is one of the more important parts of the conference,
so we’ve tried to make your stay as easy as possible.


Upon arrival, there will be signs directing you to our registration table. Information about the locations of individual activites will be provided in a brochure upon check-in. You will be given a wristband and name tag that will identify you as an attendee or speaker. Wristbands grant you admittance into the lectures and workshops.


If you’re travelling from another school, and don’t want to pay money for a hotel, our student team will be happy to let you crash in one of our apartments for a few nights. For more information on couch-surfing, contact us. For hotel accomodations, the closest hotels are:

RIT Inn and Conference Center
5257 West Henrietta Road
Rochester, NY

Radisson at RIT
175 Jefferson Road
Rochester, NY


Parking will be available in lots E, F, G, or H on RIT’s campus. From those lots, please walk straight up the hill into the breezeway; there will be signage from there. Check out this interactive map for more detailed information!
