To help with accommodation, we have negotiated special rates at two places:

  • At the Shadyside Inn All Suites Hotel for both the summer school and the conference
  • At the Hotel Indigo for the conference only

In each case, special rates are only offered for a limited number of rooms, and reservations have to be made before the following cut-off dates:

  • Cut-off for Shadyside Inn summer school dates (Aug 6-11) : July 6, 5PM EDT (passed)
  • Cut-off for Shadyside Inn conference dates (Aug 11-18) : June 26, 5PM EDT (passed)
  • Cut-off for Hotel Indigo conference dates (Aug 11-18) : July 29 (passed)

Shadyside Inn

The Shadyside Inn is not a regular hotel, but a collection of furnished apartments in a cluster of buildings. It is located about 20 mins walk from the campus:

SSI to campus

You can also travel back and forth using the Inn’s shuttle service, or by bus. (Address: 5405 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA, United States, 15232).

The reserved accommodations are in two bedroom suites, at a rate of $119/night + hotel taxes. These are spacious suites including a living room, kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. We assume that most of you who choose these suites will want to share. If you would like to find another participant to share with, you can send us an email and we’ll try to put you in contact with another participant. In any case, one of you will have to make the reservation and provide credit card information, but the payment can be made separately after arriving or at checkout.

Click here to reserve a two bedroom suite for the summer school (August 6-11).

Click here to reserve a two bedroom suite for the conference (August 11-18).

In both cases you have to proceed by entering the appropriate dates in the upper right corner of the page to access the offer at the reduced rate.

Note that due to the nature of the interface provided by the Shadyside Inn, you will have to make two separate bookings if you want to stay for the whole duration including summer school and conference. In this case each of the bookings has to be made through the appropriate link above, so after the first booking you have to come back to this page and click the other link in order to take advantage of the reduced rate.

Hotel Indigo

The Hotel Indigo is a 45 minutes walk from the conference location in a neighborhood with good shopping, dining, and transport options, and provides a complimentary shuttle service that can bring you to campus. Rooms are $119 + taxes for single as well as some double rooms (two beds in the same room).
