Travel & Accommodations Information: Thirteenth Biennial SEA Conference, 8-11 June, 2023
University of Maryland and Washington DC

Location: The SEA 2023 Biennial Conference will take place 8-11 June, 2023, on the campus of the University of Maryland and in various locations in Washington DC.

Directions: The most convenient airports for arrival at UMD are DCA and IAD. Both are fully accessible by Metro (subway). Travel time to UMD from DCA is ca. 90 mins.; travel from IAD is ca. 120 mins. BWI is also an option but requires additional travel by train or bus before connecting to Metro. For those arriving by train, the Metro ride from DC’s Union Station (via the Red and Green Lines) is ca. 45 mins. There is a free University shuttle bus from the College Park Metro Station (on the Green line) to the campus. On-campus visitor parking is also available.

Accommodations: We have not contracted for room blocks at any hotels. It is therefore important that you reserve your room a.s.a.p. The best options are the College Park Marriott Hotel , which is only a five-minute walk from the main conference venue, and The Hotel at the University of Maryland, which is a ca. 15-20 min. walk from the main conference venue. There are other hotel options in College Park, up and down Baltimore Ave. (accessible by bus). Also, Graduate students and independent scholars are eligible to reserve one of 40 available single-occupancy rooms in a University of Maryland dormitory at $325.00 for the 3 nights of 6/8-6/11 (TH/FR/SA). (Linens/towels included. 20 early arrivals on Wed. for an additional $115 are also available). If you are interested in reserving a dorm room, please email Ralph Bauer at (first come, first serve).
