Our conference venue is Concordia University Portland. Attendees may choose to stay in a dormitory on the university campus or in one of two conference hotels. If you decide to stay on the university campus, please include your selection on the registration form. If you prefer to stay in a conference hotel, make those arrangements directly with the hotel.
Concordia University Campus Lodging
Campus housing is available in East Hall on the Concordia University campus. Linens, pillows, and towels are included. The dorm is not air conditioned. All rooms have direct access to bathrooms. Each room has its own sink but the majority of rooms share the toilet and shower with the adjoining room. Each room has a small refrigerator and microwave. Floor plans are included on the East Hall page.
The Monday through Wednesday night package is $147 for a single room or $108 per person for a double. Your stay can be extended to include Sunday or Thursday nights for an additional $49/night for a single room or $36/night per person for a double room. NOTE: If a non-registered travel companion plans to share your double room, that person should also complete a registration form, selecting only the housing option.
