Housing Information

A request and place housing process through Discover Kalamazoo will be used for this event. Do NOT contact hotels directly, they will only redirect you to Discover Kalamazoo. To secure housing for this event, teams must follow the process outlined below.

Teams/organizations will be required to submit a form (which will be posted here and emailed to teams on Aug. 15 and will be due Oct. 1) outlining housing requirements and preferences. Teams will then be placed into hotels based on availability as well as each team's room night and budget requirements - specific hotel preferences will be taken into consideration but no placement is guaranteed. After the form deadline of Oct. 1, Discover Kalamazoo will organize all housing arrangements. Teams will be notified of their housing placement by Nov. 1 with additional information to finalize your booking. Any team that does NOT book their hotel with Discover Kalamazoo will bee assessed a $300 fee to be paid at the time of registration.
