Check-in

Conference guests will be directed to the hall in which they will be staying in order to check-in. Check-in times are determined by the conference coordinator. If guests arrive outside of these hours, they will be directed to the SRC Commons 24-hour Customer Service desk for assistance.

When checking in, a Conference Guest Assistant will issue a PROX FOB for the perimeter doors of the building and room key. If you are locked out of your room or building, you can contact a Conference Guest Assistant using the number posted throughout the building for assistance. However, note that lost keys will result in a charge to the conference. The conference will in turn determine whether or not to charge the respective guest for the lost key(s).

All female guests will be issued a bathroom key at check in. Bathrooms include exclusive showers and bathroom stalls, sinks, and mirrors.
