Online booking for on-campus accommodations and meals is now closed.

We are pleased to provide information of various types of accommodation during the conference, including on-campus housing and meals.

There are a variety of accommodation offerings for SAfA 2023 meeting attendees. The meeting sessions will all be held on Rice University’s beautiful, tree-lined campus.

On campus accommodation is available in one of Rice’s newest residential colleges. There are many single rooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as rooms with shared bath. Each room includes a bed with linens, a dresser, cabinet, and desk/chair. The price includes breakfast in the college dining facilities.

Meals are available at the on-campus dining facilities associated with the residential colleges. Rice’s AFC (American Culinary Federation)-certified chefs cater to everyone including those with any allergy or dietary restrictions. Options for different dietary needs are clearly marked on each dish. Gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and allergen-free offerings are always available. A full salad bar is available for lunch and dinner along with pizza during lunch and burgers during dinner, in addition to a selection of chef-prepared main dishes. 

Breakfast: Breakfast is included in the Rice University room prices, and includes a buffet-style breakfast at the dining facilities.
