During the summer months, the University of Michigan offers value-priced overnight accommodations that combine convenience and comfort within a welcoming “collegial” atmosphere. Guests can choose from budget-friendly residence-hall rooms to modern suites, from being on the heart of campus to one of Ann Arbor’s tree-lined streets, from ivy-covered walls to new construction, all within University of Michigan housing. Affordable accommodation for students is available in various dormitories on or near campus.

For example, the rate for single rooms in the North Quad dorm, which is within 2 minutes walk of the conference venue, is around US$60/night.  There are also a small number of suites available, with their own bathrooms. For suites, one person pays for the whole suite (156/night, 4 people).
