We will provide the possibility to rent student dorms on the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology. We will have rooms in the Brown building as well as in the Harris building. The cost will be between $35 (1 bed in a 2 bed dorm) and $45 per night (1 bedroom in a dorm suite). The deadline for reserving dorm space is April, 28th.
Everyone will receive one linen packet in their bedroom, and internet access will be available in the rooms. However, you will have to provide your own CAT 5 cable to connect your laptop (i.e., standard ethernet cable).
Check-in tables for the dormitories will be open on Tuesday, June 26 from 12:00 pm (noon) until 8:00 pm, in front of Brittain Dining hall, building 12 on the campus map, see see here.
Guest arriving during other times can check in at the Office of Conference Services from 7am to noon and from 8pm to midnight on Tuesday, and between 7:00 am and midnight on other days. The Office of Conference Services is located at 871 McMillan St. (Building 105 on the campus map) which is located in the Commander Commons building on West campus. See map below or at: See the map.
Brown hall is located at 625 Techwood Dr NW, whereas Harris hall is at 633 Techwood Dr NW. For transportation to and from the airport, the google map on the RSS Venue Page gives you the exact location of both residence halls. The easiest way (apart from a taxi) to get to the dorms from the airport is to take the MARTA (Atlanta Metro) to the Midtown station, and then take the Georgia Tech Trolley to Techwood Drive, followed by a 450m walk. Techwood Drive is the second stop once they catch the Trolley at the Marta Station. Once you are at Techwood Drive, we will have signs to direct you to the dorms. The last Trolley leaves the Midtown Station at 10:45 PM. Alternatively, you can exit the MARTA one stop earlier, in the North Avenue station, and side step the Trolley altogether for a slightly longer (and less scenic) walk of about 800m. The Google Earth snapshot should give more insight.
