yapc: Yet Another Perl Conference

Accommodations


What is up with dorms?

Dorm rooms are available!!! They are $USD25 per person for a double room and $50 for a single. Rooms are air conditioned and will have net access. The dorm rooms are not on the Washington University campus but on the Saint Louis University campus which is in Midtown and approximately 4 miles to the east of WU. Shuttles will be running between the campuses as well as public transportation [ WU is near a metrolink station and SLU has a station on campus ]. Online dorm registration is not yet available, but you can email sarah+yapcdorms@pound.perl.org with the dates you are interested in, your roommate, or if you would like for us to pair you with a roommate. An email will go out later to inform you of online dorm registration and billing.

Why aren't the dorms at Washington University?

Washington University, the hosting campus, is unable to provide dorms for the conference due to construction projects scheduled over the summer for campus housing.

What about youth hostels?

There -is- a youth hostel in Saint Louis. And it is inexpensive. The downside is that it's practically downtown. On the upside, bring your bicycle and you can bike it. Or, if you're less industrious, we have a light rail system called Metrolink that you can pick up downtown and ride to near campus. Campus has shuttles running to and from the Metrolink station. More details on this later!
