Lodging Information

There are several places close to the University of Arizona at which you may wish to make arrangements for lodging. The two closest hotels are the Aloft Tucson University and the Tucson University Park hotel. A cheaper option that is often used by University of Arizona groups is the Riverpark Inn (it is further away from the university, but on the streetcar line that travels right through campus so transportation is easy and inexpensive).

Visitors may also consider staying in the University of Arizona Coronado Hall where rates are $43 per night for a single room including linens, or $38 per night per person for double occupancy. Renovated in 2012/2013, the Coronado dorm has shared bathrooms (just two to four people per bathroom) and a shared full kitchen open to residents. If you select this option, please reserve a room using the individual guest request form button here. Towards the end of the reservations request process you will be asked to enter your purpose for being on campus; please note there that you are attending the CERCLL workshops.
