The conference office organises accommodation within or outside Rhodes University. Within the university, guests and or delegates may be accommodated either in the Continuing Education Centre (throughout the year) or alternatively, the university residence system, (during vacation periods only). In addition the conference office maintains good working relationships and agreements between the university and other places of accommodation within Grahamstown. There are two hotels in Grahamstown and many up-market Guest Houses, as well as some fine B&B establishments. Accommodation is, at times, co-ordinated between guests and suitable accommodation institutions according to client needs.
Accommodation can be booked online directly or by phone throughout the year. In addition we have over 3000 bedrooms available in our halls of residence during the July and December vacations, which are ideal for conference organisers wishing to offer delegates convenient and affordable accommodation, or for budget-conscious groups looking for inexpensive accommodation. Our halls are no further than 10 minutes from the city centre, so it is very easy to get to all parts of the campus and around the city. All accommodation is easily accessible by public transport. For more details of the most suitable accommodation for your event and availability please contact the Conference Office on or email providing an indication of your numbers, preferred dates and type of accommodation, and we will source the most suitable accommodation for you.
