Travel and Accommodations

We are pleased to announce that conference lodging is now available on campus: South Campus Plaza. It’s very close to the conference venue—about 1200 feet—making for an easy walk if want to return to your room between sessions. We anticipate that most participants will opt for staying there to enhance opportunities for collegial engagement. We will host an informal gathering there on Thursday evening for guests. Conference sessions start Friday morning. Rooms are also conveniently located near stores, restaurants, and the trolley station to take you to San Diego’s downtown and to the waterfront. Because the San Diego tourist season begins in June, most hotels charge at least $189.00 per night. Also, hotel accommodations in San Diego are not close to the SDSU campus, which mean taxis, Ubers, or public transportation to arrive at the conference.

South Campus Plaza rooms on campus cost $129.00 per night plus taxes/fees for a single-room occupancy. The rooms are large and have extralong twin beds, desk, chair, dresser, wardrobe, WIFI, minifridge, microwave, and bathroom. Laundry facilities, a fitness center, and parking are available.
