Walkable Housing for May 21-22 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 6 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 can see, on the Michigan "Venue" page, listings of 3 of those that are most of interest. These choices are based on Tripadvisor reviews of at least 4 out of 5 stars, once/day shuttle to/from our conference site being arranged, and P-POD negotiated price. One of these is now available to book, and two are nearly settled. Please note that all those hotel candidates are 7 to 10 miles from the conference site.]
Any combination of Fri. May 20, Sat. May 21 and Sun. May 22 nights may be booked.
If you stay in campus housing, and will have a car on campus, $10 per day should be paid by you during housing registration, covering only part of what P-POD pays the university for this. You'll use only the authorized lot near your housing: Hoyt lot near "Village" housing, Green lot near "Phelps":
Fri., day before conference: pay only if parking before 5 pm.
Sat.-Sun. conference days: pay for each day you're there.
Mon., day after conference: pay only if parking after 9 am.
Upon check-in at your housing building, you would normally get your windshield parking pass to prevent ticketing/towing, however we are trying to arrange getting from the university a printable windshield parking pass that we can email in advance to those purchasing parking.
Two Kinds of Affordable Campus Housing:
There is a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of “KITCHEN SUITE” apartments with 2 bathrooms and a living room, that may be occupied by 2 individuals with private locking bedrooms…. $89 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 is a somewhat limited supply of “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)…. $59 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.
EVEN MORE ROOM DETAILS
KITCHEN SUITE, with living room, in “The Village”:
$89 per person per night. Very 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:https://www.emich.edu/residencelife/upperclass/village.php
BASIC SOLO housing, in “Phelps Hall” in the “First-Year” complex:
$59 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 85.5” 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. Detailed description and floor plan of the room combination is at: https://www.emich.edu/residencelife/first-year/phelps.php
