1. Sharing a room and bathroom with another attendee or guest. This is one room with two twin beds for $480/person (or $80/night). This option requires you to register for all six days of the conference. This is also an alcohol free room and is approximately a 20 minute walk from the conference meeting area.
2. This is a suite of four single rooms and two bathrooms. Thus, it is a single room, one bed, sharing a bathroom with 1 other person for $570 for all six days, or $95/night. This option requires you to register for all six days of the conference. This room is next to the conference center and requires no additional walking. Due to UBC regulations, this option is not open for young children.
