Travel and Venue Information
The Friday and Saturday events will take place in the Great Lakes Room in Palmer Commons (Google Maps Link).
Palmer Drive Parking Structure is directly across from Palmer Commons, and visitor parking is priced at $0.70 per half-hour.
The Sunday events will take place in the 2nd floor Ballroom of the Michigan League (Google Maps Link).
Street parking in Ann Arbor is free on Sundays, but it is difficult to predict whether the parking garages will be free. Maynard and Thayer are two of the closest parking garages, but events in Ann Arbor might affect the pricing and availability of these.
There are two hotels that you can reserve on campus, the Bell Tower Inn and the Campus Inn. These two hotels are generally expensive, however, and you can find much better deals if you stay off-campus. To see rates and locations, click here.
If you are planning on flying, fly into DTW. There is a very reasonable shuttle service from DTW to Ann Arbor, check out rates and times at AirRide's website.
