Affordable Lodging at the New School University Center

We are providing a very inexpensive lodging alternative at the New School dorms. These are at the University Center (The New School’s new flagship building on 5th Avenue), just one block from the conference site. Here is a map.

This will take you to the reservation page. Please note that dorms can only be reserved for the entire conference duration, which we have set up for a June 7 check-in and June 11 check-out. The entire cost is $265 for four nights; this is for a bed in a double room, in a suite with two bedrooms and shared living/kitchenette/bath (four people sharing the common space), and includes towels and linens. We will provide a secure room to store luggage and personal belongings after you check out on the 11th, which is the last day of the conference.


Note that you can make roommate requests via this form, and that you will be asked to provide a photo for an ID card (so you can get in and out of the building).
