New "Family Room" Option for Annual Conference Housing

New "Family Room" Option for Annual Conference Housing


To accommodate those members who need to bring their children with them to conference, but have never had a way to appropriately register their family for Hofstra housing, we have created a solution: a family room. Not only does this help the member register for an appropriate room for his/her family, it also provides a better headcount for emergency personnel and the local fire department in case of an emergency.

All members who register for a family room will be grouped together in an area of one dorm. Members who order a “family room” will be placed in a suite next to another family, or next to another registered family member(s) by request.

A family room will be one of the larger-sized double rooms, and will cost $80/night. The $80 pays for you, your spouse and up to three minor children staying with you in the room. Please remember that there are only two dorm beds in this room — trying to fit both parents and three larger children (teenagers) would be very difficult. 

For those who have already registered, but would like to switch to a family room:

  • Click the link in the confirmation email you received,
  • When the confirmation screen appears, click the link “Edit my registration,"
  • Make your changes,
  • Then be sure to click “Submit Form” at the very bottom of the screen.
  • If additional funds are due, you would then click the "Pay Now" button on the next screen to pay by PayPal, or send a check for the additional cost.
If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Eastman at 860-633-9721 or

We hope that you like this new option, and always appreciate your input about annual conference.
