What accommodations are provided?

Hotel rooms are not included in the registration rate.

AKPsi has a block of rooms reserved for its members and guests through each hotel’s reservation cutoff date. Room types (especially those sleeping four to a room) are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Provided there are remaining guest rooms in our block after the cut-off-date, the hotel will continue to accept reservations at the special rate. Once the block is full, whether it is before or after the cut-off date, regular hotel rates will be in effect.

Attendees are responsible for contacting the hotel directly to arrange accommodations. All guests must provide photo ID on-site at each hotel in order to check-in and receive keys to their rooms. Photo ID must match the name on the room reservation or access to the hotel may be denied.

Participants are expected to comply with the Alpha Kappa Psi Code of Conduct, state and local laws as well as guest policies of the hotel.
