Traveling to Providence, Rhode Island

Easily accessed via Interstate 95, Providence is a 50-minute drive from Boston and a three-hour drive from New York City. Warwick’s Green Airport (PVD) is a 10-minute drive from Providence and offers an average of 100 nonstop daily flights, intercity bus transportation, and connection to commuter rail service. Boston’s Logan Airport (BOS) is located less than 50 miles from Providence.

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.

The General Assembly Housing Reservation System will open on Monday, March 2, at 9 a.m. EST.

2020 General Assembly Hotels

We are currently working to finalize contracts with our 2020 hotels. Details of available options will be posted here prior to the opening of housing reservations (March 2, 2020).

This year's housing options will include local dormitory-style housing at a nearby university.

Home Hospitality

UUs from local congregations serve as host families for Home Hospitality, which is B&B style accommodation with local residents. Details for Providence area home hospitality will be posted here when available.


The GA Forum is divided into separate discussions about housing, sharing rooms, 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.
