[Spring Workshop 2015] Accommodations

SFU Bby MtETUG has a block booking for workshop attendees from June 3rd to June 5th at the SFU Residence on Burnaby Mountain and the Simon Hotel .  The location is perfectly convenient and well-priced so don’t hesitate to book.
Picture this: You arrive early around noon on Wednesday June 3rd and settle in to your room on campus, after which you join in on the Visual Practice Community Meet up for a free and fun afternoon of drawing and graphic recording. (This is going to take place at Halpern Centre. More details to come!) Then it’s an easy stroll over to Club Ilia for some craft beer tasting as part of the ETUG Pub night. After dinner at Club Ilia, you leisurely walk back to your room at SFU residence or hotel. The following day you’ll be all set for the start of 2 days of ETUG Spring workshop!
Sound good? Room rates (non-inclusive of taxes) are as follows and note that the ETUG workshop block booking  is valid until May 6th.:
Single Dorm Room  $35
Townhouse Quad (without dishes) $149
Queen Hotel Room $90
Queen Sofa Room $110
