    Off Campus Housing

    The deadline for early hotel reservations has expired. To reserve a room please call the hotels directly.
    NEW: Due to the large demand for hotel accommodations, we have made arrangements with the Brownstone hotel near NCSU campus. A limited number of discounted rooms are available at the rates of $80/ single and $85.00/double. To reserve, please call the hotel at 1- 800-331-7919 and identify yourself as an attendee of the ACS Colloids and Surface Science Symposium. The Brownstone, like the other two hotels, is not within walking distance. However, the Brownstone guests can use the free NCSU bus shuttle service during the workdays (instructions and schedule will be provided at the hotel and symposium check-in).
    Arrangements for off-campus housing have also been made with two local hotels: the Ramada Inn on Blue Ridge Road, and Hampton Inn and Suites on Hampton Woods Lane. Reservations at those facilities must be made on an individual basis. Limited bus service between the two hotels and the McKimmon Center will be provided.
    Both sites had agreed to offer group rates for double and king rooms ($75.00 at the Ramada Inn, $79.00 at the Hampton Inn; the rates are subject to a 12.75% tax). When you call the hotels please identify yourself as attending the 82nd ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium. The cut-off dates for reservations are May 24 and May 15, 2008, for the Ramada Inn (1-800-441-4709) and the Hampton Inn & Suites (1-919-233-1798), respectively. For access to the group rate, reservations cannot be made on-line.
