Housing Information

The closest place to stay is at the Illini Union Hotel, where the dance is being held.

The historic Illini Union Hotel is a wonderful 'in-house' option for Jan Jam housing. Not only are you guaranteed premier on site parking, but the ease of showering and changing clothes, having a snack, taking a nap, quite easily, any time you wish through out the day and nights. You could forget the hassle of getting to and from another place, especially as weather can be troublesome early January. The rates are pretty affordable, especially if rooms are shared. A good coffee shop is in the building and a myriad of eating places within the block! We have a block of 20 rooms set aside at a 10% discount, if booked before 2 Dec, 2014.
