General Assembly Housing Reservation System

By using the General Assembly (GA) Housing Reservation System, attendees earn meeting space for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) at the hotels and the convention center. Additionally, the UUA is able to negotiate on behalf of our block of attendees for sustainability and accessibilities requirements. We are also able to assist attendees booking rooms within our block with housing issues they may encounter during General Assembly.

Dormitory Style Housing

There is no Dormitory Style housing at GA 2017, New Orleans.

Home Hospitality

UUs from congregations in the New Orleans area are excited to serve as host families for Home Hospitality (B&B style accommodations with local residents). Rates vary, but are typically $35/night for a sofa, $65/night for one person and $75/night per couple sharing a room. Full payment is due at the time of the reservation with PayPal Checkout (PayPal and Credit Cards accepted). Proceeds will benefit local UU congregations and organizations. Guests will receive booking confirmation and host information by email. (Note: Many of the hosts don't live near public transportation and some homes are too far for taxis. Guests will have to have their own cars or arrange for rides; some hosts may provide some transportation to GA events.)

Discover how the locals live in New Orleans and support New Orleans UU congregations.

Roommates

The GA Forum is divided into separate discussions about housing, room-shares, ride-shares, first-timer questions, being a delegate, the election, and other topics. You can read just the topics you are interested in and/or receive email notifications about some or all topics. The GA Forum will reopen before next year's GA.

Reserving Accessible Housing

Those in need of accessible hotel accommodations make reservations using the same housing reservations system as all other GA attendees. Read Instructions for Reserving an ADA Room.
