Hotel Accommodations

The closest hotel to NCSA is the Hampton Inn, a short 5 minute walk.

The next closest facility is the Illini Union Hotel which is about a 10-15 minute walk.

There are a few other hotels in walking distance and many more in driving distance which can be identified with an Internet search.


Please note that parking on campus is challenging, especially at the start of a new semester. There are parking meters in the parking garage next to the NCSA building, and there is free on-street parking within 10 to 15 minutes walking. There is good bus service around campus and the city.
