The cost should be approximately $109 a night for a room with double beds. Conference participants are encouraged to share rooms, however, the University of Texas and the Conference Administration is not liable for failed agreements among conference participants.

Anyone who has other accommodations or chooses another hotel for the weekend is responsible for their own transportation to and from the University of Texas where we hold the conference.
