No refund will be made after that date. No changes for residence hall reservations accepted after June 1.  Please direct questions, cancellations, and registration changes to info@asle.org

Residence hall housing is available at Wayne State University, and there is a conference hotel (St. Regis) and small inn (Inn of Ferry St.) very near campus.

IMPORTANT: WSU policy states ASLE must submit residence hall reservations THREE WEEKS prior to the conference start. Therefore, you must book your room by May 28 to guarantee space.

Please consult your hotel when reserving about their parking options and fees.
