Accommodations

Our suggested travel dates to attend the unconference are arrival on Tuesday, December 8 and departure Saturday, December 12.

We have reserved blocks of rooms and negotiated discounted rates to our meeting participants at several hotels in the area, offering a range of prices and locations: Goleta, downtown Santa Barbara, and close to the beach.

We ask that each participant reserve his own accommodations, according to his preference, referencing “spatial” at check in to obtain the discounted rate.

In each case, your reservations must be made before November 1, as the hotels will be releasing the rooms by that date and the discounted rate may no longer be made available to you.

Our selection of hotels is as follows:

In Goleta

Goleta is about a 5­–10 minute drive to the UCSB campus, where the conference will be held.

Most of the hotels in Goleta have a shuttle and will provide transportation to/from the airport and Santa Barbara Airbus station, and to/from campus. Parking at these hotels is free of charge; however, parking on campus will cost $8/day.
