On campus lodging

Dormitory housing within 5 minutes' walk from all major meeting venues will be available as part of registration (coming in February). Options are available in one of two residence halls, the Living Learning Community (LLC) and the Wallace Residence Center. The prices listed include linens (light blanket, sheet, pillow with case, towel, and washcloth), but there is no maid service. Both residence halls are within walking distance of on-campus convenience stores, and vending machines are located throughout the residence halls. The University of Idaho campus also features coffee shops, delis, a campus bookstore and a new state-of-the-art Student Recreation Center. The hours of these campus facilities vary by the school term and may or may not be open during your stay.


As of 27 April, all available rooms in the LLC have been reserved.

The Living Learning Community (LLC) is the newest residence hall and each building consists of four-bedroom suites. Each suite includes a common sink/toilet/shower and lounge area, which is shared between the participants in each suite. The participant rooms within the suites feature a twin bed, wardrobe closet, desk, dresser, and a wired Ethernet connection. The LLC buildings all feature a full kitchen and lounge on the ground floor. Individuals requesting a single room in the LLC will be sharing a four-bedroom suite with other conference participants of the same gender.
