Michigan Walking-distance Campus Housing
Walkable Housing for May 21-23 Conference, with a Private Bathroom and Private Bedroom for Each Registrant:
You now have the OPTION during our online registration to reserve affordable walkable campus lodging (if you do not live close by).... or else you may of course arrange your own off-campus lodging. At the end of your registering online for the conference, you will see the opportunity to add “recommended products” to your order, these being 8 options (combining type-of-housing and which-nights-needed) for affordable walking-distance housing. ALSO, if you PREVIOUSLY registered for the conference but did NOT purchase campus lodging, then, you may SEPARATELY add that lodging via this special link: LINK FOR HOUSING-ONLY REGISTRATION.
[If you would prefer to stay at a hotel in the area, you will soon be able to see, on the Michigan "Venue" page, listings of 2 or 3 of those that seem most of interest, based on Tripadvisor reviews, possible shuttle to our conference site, and P-POD negotiated price. Please note that all those hotel candidates will be 7 to 10 miles from the conference site.]
By default, a combination of Fri. May 21 and Sat. May 22 nights may be booked, or either of these nights may be booked alone. Then, either Thurs. night May 20 or Sun. night May 23 could optionally be added to the above in finishing the booking.
The university's campus parking contract we are required to pay for, forces us to add parking charges during registration. These cover only part of what P-POD pays out for parking. If you stay in our campus housing, and will need to keep a car on campus, $10 per day should be paid by you during housing registration for this. Upon check-in at your housing building, you should get your parking pass to secure your car and prevent ticketing or towing.
Two Kinds of Affordable Campus Housing:
There is a LIMITED NUMBER of “KITCHEN SUITE” apartments with 2 bathrooms and a living room, that may be occupied by 2 individuals with private locking bedrooms…. $79 per person per night. Occupants who are not already household members must use appropriate distancing/masking measures in shared kitchen / living-room areas.
And, there are “BASIC SOLO” accommodations where 1 person can book a completely private small room with bed and 1 two-sink bathroom (but kitchen or lounge facilities are elsewhere in the building)…. $49 per person per night. There are 2 small beds, but the university can only allow a married couple or domestic partners to co-occupy the room (each paying as a person), because there are no realistic distancing opportunities.
KITCHEN SUITE, with living room, in “The Village”:
$79 per person per night. Limited number, so these will sell out. Each person has a private locking bedroom with 85” X 39” bed, linens, bedding, desk, wired internet, window and some storage. A laundry room and 7 days/week service desk are elsewhere in the building. Different P-POD registrants may mutually choose to share an apartment (and its kitchen and living room), or else we can randomly assign other gender-compatible (as defined by you) persons to share your apartment. Occupants who are not already household members must use appropriate distancing/masking measures in shared kitchen / living-room areas. Detailed description and floor plan of the suite is at:
BASIC SOLO housing, in “Putnam Hall” or its neighbor in the “First-Year” complex:
$49 per person per night for simple private accommodations with a 2-sink bathroom. A community kitchen, lounge, laundry room and 7 days/week service desk are elsewhere in the building. This private room (12’ X 12’, plus additional foyer with 60” wide closet) is designed to be occupied by 2 freshman students, but we are placing ONE person in it. Likewise the attached 2-sink bathroom is designed for sharing by 4 students, but we are locking off the twin room on the other side so it will be for 1 person. The private room has two 78” X 39” beds, linens, bedding, two 3-drawer dressers, two desks, wired internet and a 56” X 65” window. Despite the 2 beds, the university can only allow family members or domestic partners to co-occupy the room (each paying as a person), because there are no realistic distancing opportunities.
