Lodging

There is a Swim Meet at the University. Thus the closest hotels, Radisson and Days Inn, are full. We have therefore reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Metrodome across the river, which is the next closest place. It is the oval outline left of Mondale Hall on campus map.

There is a covered walkway across river (Washington Ave) that links the Inn to the East Bank Campus and the Physics Department (10 minute walk). There is also a campus bus and the hotel runs a free shuttle (reserve at the desk).

All people who registered by Feb 3 are set. There is no need to contact the hotel, you are pre-registered with them.
