If you’ve been holding out on deciding on whether or not you are staying in the dorms at IIT, don’t hold out any longer. We need to get our final room counts in to the University this week! After today, you’ll have to look elsewhere to find accommodations.

If you are staying off-campus, we encourage you to use the IIT discount at Club Quarters in Chicago. There are two Club Quarters locations in town. The one that we recommend is the Wacker and Michigan location. The hotel is a few blocks north of the Green ‘L’ line, which will take you to IIT. To book at Club Quarters, visit the hotel website and login with the password ‘illinois institute of technology’. Alternately, you can call 212-575-0006 or in Europe 44 (0) 20-7666-1616.

On the subject of meal cards, IIT is a little worried since only ~80 of our over three hundred attendees have purchased any pre-paid cards for the University cafeteria. The cards help them know how much food to purchase and prepare. They don’t want to run out of food with people standing in line, so if you think that you will be eating on campus, please put a little credit on a card ahead of time so that they will know that you are coming.

Thanks and see you at YAPC!
