Please be vigilant if approached by any other company or service other than NIRSA Headquarters that implies or claims to be the “Official Housing Provider” for the NIRSA 2018 Annual Conference Campus Rec & Wellness Expo. We have been made aware of other housing companies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Reservations made through an agency other than the official reservation link received in your confirmation letter will be at your own risk. If you are contacted by another housing company trying to sell hotel rooms, please notify NIRSA Headquarters at .

If you need to reserve more than five rooms, or have any Housing questions, contact Adrienne Rivera at  or (702) 374-2020 between 8:00am and 5:00pm PST.

We encourage you to stay with your colleagues and friends at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center and the Grand Hyatt Denver! NIRSA relies on strong room block usage to secure conference meeting space, increase negotiation leverage for future conferences, and help keep overall Annual Conference expenses down.

Hotel reservations can be made online within the group block by using the web site link provided to you upon your conference registration confirmation. A valid credit card will be needed to secure your hotel reservation, and reservations require a deposit of one night’s stay, to be charged on or after February 9, 2018.

Multi-room reservations are possible. Details will be included in the hotel registration link.

*Rates listed above do not include tax. Hotel occupancy tax is 15.75%.

Registration is set to open in early November and early bird rates will last into early January.
