LCA 2015 Accommodation

For Linux.conf.au 2015 we are offering University Campus accommodation at a very good rate and at two different locations.

There are discounted rates for selected hotels nearby. If you wish to stay at one of the hotels you will have to organise the booking yourself. Read further for more information. As always, it pays to check the Hotel's websites for their latest deals.

University Campus Accommodation

There are two very modern University Campus accommodation complexes. Each has different features and facilities which are described below.


University Halls

This modern dual-tower complex is located on Whitaker Place. For LCA 2015 we have arranged for 3 double rooms with an ensuite and 99 single rooms over 3 floors of the complex. This is a student hall of residence so each person has their own room. Facilities, showers and toilets are shared. A continental breakfast is provided and there are no cooking facilities. There is a common room available.

Carlaw Park Student Village

Opened in February 2014, Carlaw Park Student Village is the University's newest purpose-built student accommodation. This complex has self-catered apartments. Each apartment has 3 or 4 bedrooms that share a communal kitchen and dinning area. Each bedroom can be locked and has a single bed. No meals are provided. All single female attendees will be placed into a female only apartment unless we are advised otherwise.
