The residence halls are all on campus, price includes breakfast Monday-Friday, and all are air conditioned. There are bathrooms on each floor. The residence halls are separated by gender and there are no options for couples. Thus, couples wanting to room together should use one of the hotel options. Residence halls are priced by the length of time you stay, and are approximately $80/night for a single room and $50/night per person for a double room. You can find specific residence hall information here.
If you want to stay in a residence hall, you make those reservations as part of your meeting registration. You can do this when you register for the meeting for the first time, or you can log back into your registration and add the housing option later on. Please note that once you select a residence hall package you have to pay the full cost at that time.
Individuals attending satellite meetings have the option of staying in a residence hall since there are housing packages starting as early as August 2. Alternatively, we recommend that those attending the satellite meetings stay at the Hilton Garden Inn since there will be a shuttle bus provided by the satellite to the meeting site (in the Bioscience Research Building). Individuals staying at the UMUC Inn and Conference Center by Marriott can walk to the meeting site. Satellite attendees can also stay at other hotels, but will have to arrange shuttle service with those hotels. For hotel reservations please see this page.
Unfortunately, the University cannot offer any special daycare to attendees with children. But we put together a list of alternative options that may fit your needs. The University and ICN are happy to offer these suggestions for your individual use. However, because these entities are neither owned nor controlled by the University, we assume no responsibility or liability for the quality of care provided by these privately-operated sites or individuals.
Paint Branch Montessori School
The teachers at Montessori School have kindly offered to provide day care for children of conference attendees. All children at or above the age of two are welcome to partake in their summer program. They can be contacted at the email or phone number listed below. The school is about 6.5 miles away from the University of Maryland Campus, and it would require interested attendees to organize their own transportation. Car pools could be organized using the ICN2012 facebook page.

These summer camps may be of special interest. They are located on campus and therefore make drop-offs and pick-ups particularly easy for conference attendees.
If you prefer personal babysitters, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may be able to give you a list of potential babysitters that are available during the summer and you would then contact them yourself to make arrangements. The University and ICN are happy to offer these suggestions for your individual use.
