Accommodation - Sunday September 26 through Friday October 1, 2010


  • MBL Campus Housing and/or Meals deadline is Monday, September 6th.
  • Off-campus housing deadline is Sunday, August 15th.

URGENT UPDATE: Inn on the Square has extended their block until August 18th, the Holiday Inn is still blocked until August 30, and all the other hotels have agreed to extend their deadlines of August 15th by "a few days" or until the bookings are filled (our sense is that this means end of this week at the latest!)

      On MBL Campus

      Staying on the MBL Campus offers the best value and easiest access to the TDWG conference. On-campus Housing is limited to conference attendees only. The cost to stay on MBL Campus is $620 per person, which includes:

      • Thursday evening’s Lobster Boil Banquet ONLY (no additional meals) is $55.
      • Non-conference attendees, staying off-site, may also purchase the full Meal Plan or the Lobster Boil Banquet only for the same prices. Contact conferences(at) to make arrangements and payment.u

      Hotels off campus

      September is still “in season” for tourists so reservations need to be made early.  Rooms have been blocked at 4 local hotels.  These rooms are blocked until AUGUST 15, 2010 only on a first-come, first-serve basis only. 

      For all hotels, mention "TDWG" for the group block of rooms and discount.  All prices quoted do not include applicable taxes.
