Local Arrangements

The Web Caching and Content Distribution Workshop will be held on the Charles River Campus of Boston University (click here for details). Boston is a very busy city, especially in the summer! We recommend that you finalize your local arrangements early. There are a number of options for accommodations that the workshop was able to secure. 

BU Dormitory Option ($49 per day)

410 BUICK ST
Boston, MA

The workshop has secured a block of 100 single-occupancy dormitory rooms in the brand new facility in the Student Village on the Boston University Campus. These dormitories are within walking distance from the center of Campus where the conference will be held. More information about these accommodations is available from the web site for the 10 Buick Street Residence. At $49 a day (at the heart of Boston) this is by far the cheapest and most convenient option.

To secure a room in the BU Dormitories, you must pre-register (by June 8th) and you must send full payment along with your registration fees (see registration form). If you decide you want to stay on campus past that date, please contact Ms. Ellen Grady at 617-353-8919.
