Stay with your friends this year at linux.conf.au!

This year at linux.conf.au, the residential college arrangements will be a little different from most years – we think for the better! We're not only offering the usual conference networking, but a couple of different styles of accommodation also.

The single room university accommodation comes in two flavours :

Single dorm rooms that many of you are probably already accustomed to, in the residential college itself. These rooms have a communal bathroom arrangement, but offer the most room privacy. More info can be found at http://www.utas.edu.au/accommodation/prospective/hbt/christ/index.htm

What will make this year different however, is that we are offering a number of 6 bedroom apartments also. These apartments contain 2 bathrooms, kitchen and lounge and meeting areas so you can hack on through the night in a small communal environment. This also means if you're travelling to LCA in a group, you can choose to stay with your mates in a communal house. More information and floor plans can be found at http://www.utas.edu.au/accommodation/prospective/hbt/selfcatered.htm

Rather than randomly allocating everyone, we thought, why not give you the option to choose who you'd like to stay with? So, if there's other delegates who are also booked into Uni accommodation who you'd like to stay with, please let us know!

This is purely voluntary, there's no obligation to opt in, and although the organising team will do their best to accommodate your preferences, we cannot guarantee that we'll be able to put all of your choices in the same apartments. First in, first served!

Email your preferences to accommodation@marchsouth.org by Sunday 11th January 2009. Not sure who else is going? Drop by the wiki at http://linux.conf.au/wiki/ or sign up and write to the LCA09_Chat mailing list and arrange your perfect share apartment!
