During Fall 2018 Secretariat will work with local Charlottesville hotels to set up reservation blocks. Information about hotel blocks will be emailed to each delegation upon registration, as well as posted on this page.
As VICS will be held on the lovely and historic Grounds of the University of Virginia, VICS strongly encourages delegations to stay as close to the University’s Central Grounds as possible. In order to make booking rooms as easy as possible, VICS will be partnering with local hotels to secure hotel room blocks. Delegations are not required to stay at these blocks, however we would like to emphasize the importance of staying at a hotel close to the main campus of the University of Virginia. All committee sessions will be held in academic buildings on campus, and all social events will be hosted on the Corner (University Avenue) and the area behind the corner. In the past, some delegations have chosen to stay at hotels farther away from the conference (down Route 29) in order to save money, but ended up spending more money on Uber to travel back and forth from committees and social events. Thus, we highly recommend taking advantage of the reservation blocks.
If your delegation does not wish to wait for hotel blocks to be posted, we recommend the following hotels close to Grounds:
The Graduate Charlottesville
Located on the Corner and across the street from the University, the Graduate Charlottesville is in an ideal location for quick travel to committee and all the conference’s social events. Rooms feature two queen beds, a refrigerator, free high speed wireless internet, and docking stations, among other things. You can call the Graduate at (434)295-4333.
Courtyard by Marriott at the University Medical Center
Also located on the Corner and only a short walk away from committee sessions and social events, the Courtyard by Marriott at the University Medical Center offers rooms with two queen beds, free high speed internet, complimentary parking, and more. This Courtyard Marriott can be reached at (434)977-1700.
