Housing rules covering Hale Pohaku suites & facilities include the following, in addition to other conditions displayed in that reservations site & the instructions that Chaminade Residence Life Office sends to attendees who make reservations:

* Once they reserve rooms, conference attendees will receive information on deadlines & penalties for room cancellation or changes from Residence Life. Generally, to cancel their reservations so as to receive a refund, attendees need to notify Residence Life staff at least 7 days prior to the reservation check-in date to alter their housing reservationsConference attendees, not the Science Fiction Research Association, will be responsible for communicating any changes in dorm reservations to the Residence Life staff in a timely way & for paying residence-reservation-related fees or deposits.

* Attendees will note on their online reservation form when they will be coming in & when they will leave Hale Pohaku (including flight info such as departure/arrival times & airport locations), so that a Residence Life staff can check them in & out, distribute/collect the room keys, & exchange other info or documents (payment card, license # for parking, etc.). Generally, check-in starts around noon & check-out should be by noon, but confirm with Residence life for your particular logistics.  Check-outs past noon will incur a fee of $90 (except on Mon. 6/24, the last day of the conference).  Bring your ID & a credit card when checking in.

* Wi-fi & parking will be provided at no additional cost. After making reservations, attendees will receive info from the Residence Life Office on how to receive the wi-fi access code as well as arrange to get a campus parking pass for their cars.

* Please note when making the reservations whether you want to dorm with specific people in your 2-person bedroom or within your 4-person suite, providing those people's names.  If you specify marital or familial relationships, Residence Life will put you, your spouse, &/or your relatives together in a bedroom. Otherwise, office staff will assign same-sex suite mates &/or same-sex bedroom co-residents.

* Those rates cover the period from Wed. 6/19/2019 through Sun. 6/30/19. However, please directly contact Dayna (dbareng@chaminade.edu) at the Chaminade Residential Life office [(808) 735-4648], if you plan to arrive before the conference start date of 6/21 and/or if you plan to stay up to 5 days beyond the last conference day of Mon. 6/24/19 (extended reservations outside of 6/21-6/24 are based on room availability).

* Respect the kitchen facilities' usage hours posted outside of that room. The secure kitchen contains a pair of refrigerators, an oven range, a coffee maker, & a microwave oven, as well as a sink. The kitchen is shared by all Hale Pohaku residents, so you will have to provide your own kitchen implements (see Travel and Accommodations on nearby Kaimukī Shopping Center's grocery & drug stores where you can buy prepared or raw food & also cooking tools).

* In the Hale Pohaku building, a covered deck with campus & city views & vending machines also offer dining options & socializing areas.

* No smoking, vaping, or pets in the suites.

Reservations can be made here on the Chaminade Residence Life Office site.

See Travel and Accommodations for directions to the campus, a Chaminade map, as well as information on nearby dining,  grocery, & wine shop options on Waiʻalae Avenue & in Kaimukī.


Additionally, the "Courtyard by Marriott" Courtyard Waikīkī Beach hotel will offer a Chaminade University discount, upgrading rooms from the standard category into the deluxe category, as an SFRA Conference deal. [The deluxe rooms are larger, around 299 square feet, with a King- or Queen-sized bed or two double-sized beds and a mini-kitchenette (wetbar, coffee-/tea-maker, mini fridge, and a microwave).] 

UPDATE (June 7, 2019) for very late registrants: Marriott said that even in June, they will be willing to honor the group rate for late registrations, based on availability (so if you missed the below 5/24-29/19 deadlines, you might still be able to stay at this hotel using that Chaminade discount).  Any interested SFRA participants may send their requests to Brent Umehira (Sr. Sales Manager) directly at 808-954-4016 or bumehira@waikikicourtyard.com
