If you are an invited speaker or are receiving lodging as part of your support from the
conference, we will book you a room at the UH Hilton and pay for it directly. Speakers
will have individual rooms, and supported participants will be booked two to a room
(with two beds in each room). All rooms have their own bathroom.
If your lodging is not being supported by the conference, you will have to
book and pay for your own accommodations. Two possibilities for
lodging are the UH Hilton and the Wyndham-Medical Center.
This hotel is approximately a 5-10 minute walk to the math department and where the conference will be held.
Guests may park in the UH Hilton Parking Garage located underneath the Hilton. If you
are unsupported and making your own reservations, the room rates are typically $150 per
night, although the price is highly variable based on availability and
events that may be occurring on campus. If you are staying at the Hilton, you have complimentary access
to the UH campus Recreation Center. Visit the front desk of the hotel to ask about your free Rec Center pass.
This hotel is located at 6800 Main Street, Houston, TX 77030. The phone number is (+1) (713)-528-7744, and the
room rate is approximately $100 per night. Participants staying at the
Wyndham-Medical Center will need to provide their own transportation to and from the UH campus.
If you have a car, it takes about 15 minutes to get to the UH campus plus 10 minutes
to walk from the parking garage to the conference room. There is also
a bus stop across Main St., right next to Bank of America at Greenspoint Transit Center (TC).
To get to the UH campus, take the 056 bus to Richmond and Montrose, transfer to the 025
bus and get off at Scott St. and Wheeler, and then walk a few blocks to the
University of Houston campus. The total
trip takes about 45 minutes. More info on bus schedules can be found on the
Houston Metro Page
Guests at the UH Hilton can park at the UH Hilton parking garage
located underneath the Hilton. Parking here is $20.00 per day. Other participants
can pay to park for the day
at the Welcome Center Garage (see campus map below for location). The cost for
this is $12 per day. During the weekend, parking on campus is free in all
ungated lots. WARNING: if you arrive Sunday and park at an ungated lot for free, you
MUST move your vehicle to one of the options above by 8:00AM Monday morning.
