2019 Lodging


Since this is a small conference, we do not have a block of hotel rooms reserved. This list provides several nearby options for walking or transit, which are also convenient to downtown events. We would like to mention that VCU is an urban university, and the library is in the center of downtown Richmond. Hotels farther away plus a Lyft or Uber to campus may be more economical than hotels and deck parking near campus.

Please contact hotels directly to make reservations.
