Parking and Shuttles

Wifi Access and Outlets

Public wifi is available. Look for the UR Guest network.

Access to electrical outlets will be severely limited as there are no electrical outlets in the auditorium where the talks will take place and only a handful of outlets in the ballroom where breakfast and breaks will be. We've also been told that we are NOT allowed to plug power strips into any outlets.

If you're bringing a laptop, smartphone, or anything else with a rechargeable battery, you'll want to make sure it's fully charged before you arrive as you probably won't be able to charge it while you're there.
