Hotel Accommodation and Travel

Hotel Accommodation

If you are joining us from outside the Calgary area, there are on-campus hotel and residence accommodation options available through Hotel Alma. (The special rate offer for conference attendees has expired.)

There are also numerous hotels within 2 km of campus. If you do not choose to park on campus (see below), you may want to inquire if your chosen hotel has a shuttle service, as the walk to the conference venue could take 20-30 minutes.

On-site Parking and Transit

The Art Parkade on the south side of campus (entrance off of 24 Ave. NW just west of University Drive, see map from Apple or Google) is your best bet for parking. Cost is $10 per entry, but there is no time limit for your stay that day.

The campus is well-served by Calgary Transit as well. The main loop at the south end of campus is very close to our venue and is served by a number of bus routes. The University LRT station is just a few minutes further away. Adult cash fare is $3.40.

Inter-city Bus

Calgary is served by Red Arrow motor coach services. You can take Calgary Transit from their downtown station to get to the University of Calgary as well as your hotel accommodations.

Air Travel and Related Ground Transportation

If you fly to Calgary, it is about a $35 cab ride from the terminal to the University campus. Associated Cabs has the contract for all departures from the airport, but any company may drop you off there. Unfortunately, there are currently no shared van services that can take you to campus for a cheaper fee. If you have a Car2Go membership, there are dedicated spots both at the Airport and on campus in the Art Parkade. The ride-sharing services operating in Calgary include the Alberta-based TappCar and Uber. Calgary Transit does serve the airport with a limited stop bus, but you would need to transfer to another bus or train to get to campus. Cash fare is $10.75 from the airport (transfer included).
