As a major sports event will also take place during the same week as the LIP2018 and ELS-XVII conferences, the organisers strongly encourage all participants to manage their accommodation as early as possible. While there will be hotel spaces available in the wider Bryan/College Station area, rooms close to the Texas A&M University will fill up quickly. There is no penalty for cancelling a hotel reservation in B/CS until two days before arrival, so it is advisable to make a hotel reservation now, even if you may later decide, not to attend the conference.

The following hotels will provide reduced rates for LIP and ELS conference participants upon request and as long as the limited spaces are available:
When booking a hotel room from one of these places, please mention the group block  TAMU Atmospheric Sciences LIP/Electromagnetic Symposium or, if necessary, the group code for the corresponding hotel in order to access one of rooms with the conference rate. 
To get around town, the following options exist in Bryan/College Station:
  • A Hotel shuttle service is available from Cavalry Court, The George, and The Hilton.
  • The conference venue can be reached after a brisk walk from the following hotels: Cavalry Court, The George, and the Four Points.
  • For a list of available Taxi services and car rental companies, please check the corresponding homepage of Easterwood airport.
  • Bicycles can be rented at a university bicycle station (Zagster membership required).
  • Uber services are available and frequently used in B/CS.
  • There is no public transportation. Busses are available to TAMU students only.
