Some but not all hotels will honour the group rate for a day or two before and/or after the conference - check with the hotel directly for clarification.
The only on-campus options for accommodations are through UOttawa Housing.
UOttawa ResidencesLimited parking is available for an additional fee: check with the Residence when booking.
Breakfast vouchers are not available, but Father & Sons (see Campus page) accepts pre-orders by phone.
UOttawa Residence always sells out: book early.
We have been able to reserve some rooms with UOttawa Residences. A smaller-than-usual number of rooms are available at U90, and additional rooms are available at both Rideau and Henderson residences, which are both within reasonable walking distance.
Rideau residence is the former Quality Inn on Rideau St. at the corner of King Edward Ave., and Henderson is in a quiet area at the south end of campus.
In all cases, use booking code BSDCAN2016.
The negotiated rates are valid for June 7th through June 11th; if you want to stay before or after the conference this year, you may want to consider calling or emailing instead of using the online booking system.
The booking code expires at Noon on Monday May 9th, 2016.Book early if you want a room on campus.
We have secured rates at multiple nearby hotels this year.
(Les Suites is almost exactly the same distance from the conference sessions as U90, but in the opposite direction.)

Other Nearby Hotels
Also nearby are the Novotel (adjacent to Les Suites), the Extended Stay Canada - Ottawa on Cooper St., and the Marriott Courtyard Ottawa on Dalhousie St., but no group rates have been negotiated with either of these so far. For 2016, if you're staying on the west side of the Rideau Canal, be aware of the construction-related detour at Campus Station if you use the pedestrian bridge at Somerset St.
