General Assembly Housing

A Hyatt Regency hotel room featuring a king-sized bed, desk, and view of the Oregon Convention Center.

The 2022 UUA General Assembly (GA) Housing Reservation System  offers attendees premium amenities, discounted rates, and the best networking opportunities. Booking in the hotel block assists the UUA in effectively controlling meeting space, attrition, and penalty fees; all of which directly benefit you and the future of General Assembly. Additionally, the UUA is able to negotiate on behalf of our block of attendees for sustainability and accessibilities requirements. In 2022 we anticipate fewer in-person attendees and will have ample housing options available in our hotel and dormitory blocks.

Attendees who book within the UUA housing block will be in the expert hands of Connections Housing, the only official 2022 UUA General Assembly Housing Bureau. The Connections Housing Team is dedicated exclusively to managing UUA housing blocks and supporting attendees with their housing needs. Your dedicated Connections Housing contact, Robbin Cassell, may be reached via email at TravelPortland@connectionshousing.com, or via the UUA Housing Call Center at 702-476-6976, Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm ET. Robbin will be on-site in Portland OR, and able to assist attendees with housing questions they may have during General Assembly.

Your Booking Benefits: When your reservation is confirmed at one of these hotel properties, you’ll automatically be entered in a raffle to win a Portland area gift card, or our grand prize, a complimentary suite upgrade! The winner(s) will be announced by June 1, 2022.
