The conference will be held on the lakeshore campus of Loyola University, Chicago.
We have reserved rooms for participants in the Hilton-Orrington hotel in Evanston (1710 Orrington Ave, Evanston IL 60201).
To reserve a room, go here. You may also call 1-800-HILTONS (1-800-4458667) and tell them you are with the ECOAS group for our reduced rate of $169/night. These rates are good through August 31, 2016.
Graduate student funding will pay for a shared hotel room.
A new hotel has opened near Loyola: The Flats At Loyola Station. If you wish to stay close to the conference instead of driving or taking a train or taxi from Evanston, this may be a good option.
If the Hilton does not have rooms left, you may try The Homestead (847-475-3300), a smaller hotel which is also located in downtown Evanston and similarly priced.
