The Institute organizers have prepared an exclusive offer for accommodation. University of Kentucky housing has designated an on-campus block in one of the new residence halls of the university, Haggin hall. For just $35 per night, you will have a shared suite – with two private bedrooms; for those who prefer the suite to be rented as a private place, the suite can be rented for $60 per night. The building is just steps from the Jacobs Science Building, where the event will be held. The on-campus residence halls have central air conditioning, (shared) kitchen space, meeting rooms and laundry facilities; besides, the suites are just a short walk away from the downtown. It is the place to be! For more detailed information about accommodation, please click on this link.
