Quadruple $125
Room rates include breakfast, wireless internet, and parking.

The hotel also has a state-of-the-art fitness center ($5/day), spa services, and much more! Check out the Where It’s At post for more info on the South Shore Harbour Resort.

Flying Info

  1. Hobby Airport- located near the conference
  2. Houston Intercontinental Airport- located a few hours north of the conference

An airport shuttle service is provided by Clear Lake Shuttle if travelers work with the shuttle company’s schedule and arrange for service at least 24 hours in advance.

Please note that while Clear Lake Shuttle will provide service to and from Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH), the cost will be high. If you are traveling with a group of people and must fly to IAH, consider renting a car instead.

Driving Info
Within the registration form, there is an option for bus service to UHCL. This option was created with the intent to provide those who are unable or reluctant to drive a means of transportation to the conference on Friday. If you register early, the round trip bus fee is only $5/person.

Driving directions can be found here.
