Home Hospitality

UU's from the Providence congregations are looking forward to serving as host families for Home Stay (B&B style accommodations with local residents). Rates vary, but a guideline would be $40/night for a sofa bed, $75/night for a room with a shared bath and $85/night for a room with a private bath. Proceeds will benefit the UU churches of Providence, which are First Unitarian Church of Providence, Bell Street Chapel, and First Universalist Church of Providence. Guests will receive booking confirmation, at which time full payment is due with PayPal Checkout. Hosts will contact them to confirm their accommodations and go over details. (Note:  Airport transportation is offered by some hosts for an extra fee. Guests will need to have their own cars, arrange for rides, or use public transportation. Hosts may provide some transportation to GA events.)

Roommates

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.
