General Assembly Housing

General Assembly Housing

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 in booking rooms within our block with housing issues they may encounter during General Assembly. Incentives, like hotel rebates and concessions, enable us to fund financial support for participants and offer private meeting space for various groups meeting in-person.

Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for UUA General Assembly. We understand that unauthorized housing companies may contact you and advertise cheaper rates or may imply or claim an affiliation with the event. Unfortunately, some past attendees have fallen prey to these companies and were unable to recuperate the money they spent on rooms that did not exist. If you are contacted by any company that is NOT Connections Housing, email us (

Home Hospitality

GA attendees seeking roommates and/or home hospitality are invited to fill out a GA room share application. All applicants will be automatically added to the GA Roomshare Board.

Some room share board listings include locals offering housing, however, we’ve struggled to identify one central congregation for home hospitality. As another option, you may reach out to Christine Milcarek (, local area housing coordinator for GA 2023. Christine can also put a request out to congregations to help meet your need.
