Conference Lodging

Lodging for the NAMLE conference is available at American University in the new East Campus Commons, conveniently located just steps away from the conference venue in Constitution Hall. Guests will be staying in either Constitution, Congressional or Federal Hall. These residence halls have single- and double-occupancy rooms with full bathrooms en suite. You must be 18 or older to register for a dorm room. If you are traveling with high school students, please contact us at to discuss arrangements.



Single-occupancy rooms: $90/person/night + tax
Double-occupancy rooms: $75/person/night + tax

If you opt to stay in a double-occupancy room, you will be staying with another NAMLE conference attendee. Requests for roommates need to be submitted in writing by both guests to University Conference & Guest Services at at least seven (7) days prior to your check-in date. American University will work to accommodate all requests submitted by the deadline.

Please note that rates do not include the mandatory D.C. Hotel Tax of 14.95%.


Your check-in and check-out dates will be automatically filled based on the conference dates. If you wish to adjust your check-in or check-out dates, use the calendar feature when prompted to select your lodging accommodations.

Please note: You can only reserve a room within the original block of time (6/25/19-6/29/19). You cannot extend your stay in the dorms before the start or past the end of the conference. Should you require lodging before 6/25/19 or after 6/29/19, please visit American University’s Hotel Partner page. For your convenience, special rates for friends and guests of the university have been negotiated in advance. 


Guests will have access to laundry facilities, floor lounges, equipped with a kitchenette and television, as well as three campus fitness centers. All conference guests will have access to the AU shuttle service and free Wi-Fi network, AUGuest-ByRCN.

Rooms will come made up with two flat bedsheets, one pillow with pillowcase, one blanket and one towel. Being mindful of American University’s Carbon Neutrality, please note that travel-sized soaps are not provided. The Federal Hall front desk will always be staffed should guests have any questions.


Conference participants can register for conference lodging through our Conference Lodging Portal, available here. Please select “Conference Guest Online Registration” at the top of the page, then select “NAMLE Conference 2019” to register for that block of rooms.

Here is a step-by-step guide for registering using the Lodging Portal. 

Each overnight guest needs a unique login and email; therefore, you cannot register more than one guest under a login. If you wish to room with another conference participant who will be staying on-campus, both guests must submit this request in writing to University Conference & Guest Services at at least seven (7) days prior to your check-in date. We will work to accommodate all requests submitted by the deadline.

Only credit card payments made through the online portal will be accepted. Full payment is required at the time of registration. Your registration can only be confirmed once payment is received. Once payment is received, your reservation is non-transferable.

Charges will not be prorated for late arrivals and early departures.


Cancellations must be received in writing to no less than fourteen (14) days prior to the requested check-in date.
