Housing, Hospitality and Travel for Columbus
General Assembly Housing Reservation System
2017 HOUSING INFORMATION PAGE WILL BE UPDATED IN JANUARY
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.

Unitarian Universalists (UUs) from congregations in the Columbus metropolitan area are serving as host families for Home Hospitality (B&B style accommodations with local residents). Rates are $65/night for one person and $75/night per couple sharing a room. A $25 deposit will be required after the application is accepted. Guests will receive host information by email with instructions on where to send the deposit and make final payment. (Note: Many of the hosts don't live near public transportation. Guests will have to have their own cars or arrange for rides; some hosts may provide some transportation to GA events.)
We're happy to announce that this year, you can look for roommates on the GA Forum, an online General Assembly discussion that replaces the old UUA-GA email discussion list. 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.
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.
