Travel and Accommodations
A one-sheet detailing travel to Marquette University can be found here: SFRA 2018 Traveling to Marquette University
Hotel: Due to seasonal and holiday fluctuations in ticket prices,
fully furnished, single-occupancy dormitory rooms have been reserved for
conference attendees at low cost on Marquette’s campus. These rooms will be
significantly cheaper than a traditional conference hotel rate. Attendees who
wish to stay at a hotel anyway are advised to make their reservations sooner
rather than later due to the proximity of the July 4 holiday and to the
“Summerfest” music festival held in Milwaukee during the conference dates.
You can reserve your room and/or parking when you register. You can also book your room and reserve your spot later using the online store (see the Accommodation and Parking Booking page).
Travel: Milwaukee is served by an international airport, airport code MKE. Some travelers in search of lower fares and/or direct flights may prefer to search at Chicago O’Hare (ORD), approximately 70 miles away and accessible by train, bus, and rental car. The drive from O’Hare is very easy, on a dedicated highway with very little traffic, and parking will be available on Marquette’s campus for $10/day (see below).
Food: The conference will include two keynote lunches and an awards banquet the last night. Marquette’s campus is a short, safe walk from downtown Milwaukee with many dining options available there; there is also a smaller area closer to campus called “Campustown” with a number of cheap, good restaurants.
