Hotel Reservations

The block of rooms reserved at the Radisson-University Hotel has already filled. CARLA has arranged for another block of rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton in Minneapolis for $105/night + tax. This block is scheduled to close on May 2nd, but it will likely fill before that day. This hotel is close to the University area, but it is not within walking distance. To make travel easier for our guests we have arranged with the hotel to have a shuttle bus run in between the conference hotel and the 4 Points by Sheraton hotel at key times during the conference.

To take advantage of this offer you can register on-line at the Four Points Sheraton website.  This room block will be released on May 2nd.

Please note that there is a very large conference going on during the week of May 28-31 in Minneapolis so downtown hotel room availability is tight.  We urge you to make your accommodation arrangements as soon as possible.

Roommate Matching Service

As a service to participants in CARLA-sponsored conferences and summer institutes, we are maintaining a list of participants who are seeking someone with whom to share accommodations.



Parking is available at the Washington Avenue Ramp of the University of Minnesota on Washington Avenue at a cost of $2.50 per hour ($12 daily maximum–rates subject to change). Guests of the Radisson-University Hotel can park for a special rate of $9.50 per day in the lot behind the hotel. 

Less expensive parking is available four blocks away in the Huron Blvd. Parking Complex just north of 4th Street S.E. for $3.50 per day. Please note that there is no overnight or Saturday parking in the Huron Blvd. Parking Complex. For location information see:


Getting from the Airport

The Super Shuttle is a group limousine service that will take you directly to the Radisson-Metrodome for approximately $20 round-trip. A cab to the Radisson-Metrodome will cost approximately $25.00 one way.
