All conference housing will be available for a fee at San Francisco State University. Each dorm room will have either 1 or 2 beds and desks per room. We will be using the dorms when there are no classes, so we will have the place to ourselves. The dorms are in high-rise buildings and have centralized toilet and shower areas on each floor. The dorms and rooms have varying degrees of access (see Housing Access for more details).
The housing costs include breakfast.
Double room: $28.oo per person per night
If you stay on campus, we will work to ensure the maximum available access for you.
To make the dorm housing accessible to people with chemical sensitivities, we ask that all of the shared bathrooms be entirely scent-free. We strongly encourage conference participants to bring their own unscented personal care products, but we will also provide some basic products (shampoo, conditioner, soap) in each shared bathroom, and will have a wider range of products for sale at the conference. More information about being scent-free.
WHY WE ARE SUGGESTING YOU STAY IN THE DORMS
Some of us are seeing this as a wonderful opportunity to have play time with each other - sort of like queer disability camp.
Please note that we will not assist you with any off-campus
housing. The information below is for your information only.
1. Near the SF ZOO - There is a small cluster of hotels is on Sloat Boulevard near the San Francisco Zoo. It is within a mile of the SFSU campus. Depending on the number of participants staying at these hotels, SFSU may run a shuttle between the conference and these hotels. In our opinion, these hotels are a good option for people using cars or taxis. They are not a great option if you need wheelchair transportation. Also the limited number of hotels means a very limited number of wheelchair rooms. Some suggestions are available at the SFSU website: http://www.sfsu.edu/prospect/hotels.htm
2. Downtown San Francisco - Downtown San Francisco
has a hotel every 10 yards. This is a good option if you want a choice
of rooms and/or want a wheelchair accessible room on a major transportation
line. If you are also going to the Society for Disability Studies conference,
you can take BART from the same station. Staying in downtown San Francisco
is not a great option if you are using a car - as street parking is
very restricted and hotel parking is very expensive.
