DORMS: MAIN LODGING/LOWEST PRICE FOR ICAR 2020 (includes daily breakfast) The main lodging for ICAR 2020 will be in newer campus dorm rooms which are operated by University of Washington. Given the high price of local hotels we consider these dorms the best option for most attendees (if you need larger spaces and/or beds, e.g. if you are traveling with friends or family, you may prefer the Alternative Lodging options at bottom of this page)
Dorm CHECK-IN: After 2 p.m. on July 6 2020 at the (to be confirmed building) Conference Desk. Dorm CHECK-OUT: By 11 a.m. on July 10 2020 at the (to be confirmed building) Conference Desk. (extra days before and after may be reserved if needed, to accommodate early check-in/late check-out)
Number of rooms held is limited. Make your reservation by June 12, 2020 (to ensure a room, try to reserve by May 8 2020).
Conference guests will reside in double- or single- occupancy rooms with private baths, nightstands, and dressers.

However, children eight years of age or younger may bring a sleepingbag to use on the floor of a fully-occupied room at no additional charge. Children nine years of age or older must occupy a bed and are charged the full package rate. A fully occupied room is one in which all available beds have been paid for at the package rate.

Children in the residence halls must be supervised at all times by an adult assuming full responsibility for their safety and behavior.
University of Washington residence halls and campus facilities offer a smoke-free environment. In accordance with Washington State law, smoking is prohibited in all indoor public areas including lobbies, dining rooms, meeting rooms, laundry rooms, hallways, floor lounges and sleeping rooms.

There is no charge to park in designated areas after noon on Saturdays and all day on Sundays and University of Washington holidays. Parking fees are payable upon entrance to the campus. Recreational campers and trailers are not permitted to park in University of Washington parking lots. Parking fees and policies are determined and enforced by University of Washington Commuter Services and are beyond the scope of this agreement. Rates are subject to change without advance notice. With permission from University of Washington Commuter Services, Conference Services will sell permits on a space available basis for guests to park long-term in lots near the residence halls. Very few loading spaces are provided in the vicinity of the residence halls, and traffic is frequently congested in those areas. This is the required procedure to ease congestion and prevent guests from receiving citations for improperly parking:
1. Purchase a daily permit at a gatehouse upon entrance to campus. 2. Park the vehicle in the assigned lot. (On Sundays and University of Washington holidays, guests may park in an available lot, observing any posted restrictions.) 3. Check in at the assigned Conference Desk. Purchase a long-term parking permit, presenting the gatehouse register receipt. 4. Move the vehicle to the new lot assignment. 5. Unload luggage and proceed to your room. Disability parking permits or other special accommodations must be arranged in advance through Conference Services. There is no complimentary parking on campus.
