AudiologyNOW! 2015 Room Sharing Board

In an effort to help save housing costs, we have formed an online forum for attendees to arrange to share a hotel room. To assist with selecting a roommate and making lodging arrangements, the Academy has provided the following list of questions users may wish to discuss with potential roommates:

-Do you snore?
-Do you smoke or do you require a non-smoking room?
-Do you go to bed early or stay up late?
-Do you have any special needs?
-Who will make reservations with the hotel? What type of room will you choose?
-Will the cost of the room be divided evenly among each guest?
-Who will confirm billing arrangements with the hotel?
-Who will provide a credit card upon checking in?
- Will you block incidentals from the room, requiring cash payment for room service and other hotel services?

As this list does not provide a comprehensive set of questions addressing every aspect of shared lodging, users are responsible for considering questions that address concerns specific to each individual. Please note that it is not the Academy's responsibility to address these issues and ensure any arrangements resulting from use of this forum are adhered to.

Use Comments to discuss room sharing and please read our disclaimer.
