The closest hotel to the Symposium is the East Lansing Marriott.

There are also hotels farther down Grand River Ave and Michigan Ave that offer complimentary shuttles. More information can be found on this list of local hotels generated by Michigan State University.


Conference attendees can opt to stay with an MSU local at no cost, though availability may be limited! If you think you might be interested in a homestay, please fill out this survey and we will be in touch.


A block of rooms in Owen Hall on campus has been reserved for conference attendees. Single rooms are available at a rate of $50/night, and each single room shares a bathroom with one other single room. Requests to share space with a particular fellow attendee can be accommodated. More information on rooms is available on this information sheet for visiting scholars. Guests should email Geoff Parkerson directly to book a room, but feel free to email with any questions.
