The Indiana Memorial Union will serve as the location for conference registration, sessions and social events. For your convenience, we suggest that you reserve a guestroom at the IMU. In addition to being the location for conference activities, the IMU is located in the center of campus and is in easy walking distance to many of Bloomington’s downtown shops, cafes and restaurants. You can explore many of these options through the web site: Visit Bloomington

Rates & Reservations

To assure that hotel rooms are available, book your hotel room early. Spring is a busy time on campus. Additionally, the conference’s room block will be released to the general public on February 28th. After that date there is no guarantee that a hotel room in the IMU will be available to those attending the conference.

In order to secure a hotel room at the Indiana Memorial Union, contact the hotel directly or reserve your room on-line. When phoning for your reservation, you must identify that you will be attending the African Linguistics Conference in order to obtain a room.
