For Those Still Seeking Housing Reservations

Here are a few options:

  • Make Home Hospitality Reservations—There are 12 home stay rooms available within a half-hour drive to Providence. These wonderful hosts are eager to welcome you into their homes during GA week. If you are traveling by car, this may be a terrific option for you. 
  • Search your favorite travel site (such as AAA.com or Hotels.com) for other hotel options in the vicinity.  Another resource is www.goprovidence.com.
  • Send and receive room sharing notices on the UUA-GA email list.

Roommates

The UUA-GA email list is a non-official electronic bulletin board for members of the GA community (for UUs to share GA-related information, questions and discussion, as well as look for roommates, rides etc.).

Reserving Accessible Housing

Those in need of accessible hotel accommodations make reservations using the same housing reservations system as all other GA attendees. Read Instructions for Reserving an ADA Room.

General Assembly (GA) Housing Reservation System

By using the General Assembly Housing Reservation System, attendees earn meeting space for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) at the hotels and the convention center. Additionally, the UUA is able to negotiate on behalf of our block of attendees for sustainability and accessibilities requirements. We are also able to assist attendees booking rooms within our block with housing issues they may encounter during General Assembly.

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) strives to live out our values in all aspects of our work, and this is especially true of General Assembly, the largest annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists. Because the UUA supports fair wages and labor practices for hospitality industry workers, we have terminated two hotel contracts that were originally part of the GA housing block. The terminations were without financial penalty to the UUA, due to labor-specific language in our contracts. Together these two hotels, the Renaissance and the Providence Hilton, represent a significant loss to the room nights inventory we had planned for GA.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
