    Convention registrants can use this forum thread to identify other participants who may wish to share accommodations. The MLA assumes no responsibility or liability for these arrangements, since a decision to share hotel accommodations is one made by the participant, not the MLA.

    Please note that in order to make reservations at MLA rates at the convention hotels, all occupants of a room must be registered for the convention or be eligible for exempt status (i.e., not professionally involved in any field relating to the study of language and literature).

    For more information about the convention, including details about reserving rooms at the convention hotels, please visit http://www.mla.org/convention.

    I have a room at the Hyatt Regency Austin (208 Barton Springs Rd, approximately 8/10th of a mile from the convention center) with an extra queen bed for the nights of Wed the 6th through Sun the 10th. I will definitely stay on the evenings of the 6th and 7th, but might cancel my later days if I don’t get any interview requests for the the 9th or the 10th. I’ll know for certain what my itinerary is by January 1.

    I’m a man and would be happy sharing a room with a person of any gender. The total cost of the room is $200 per night, so for the nights I’m there your share would be $100. If you would like to stay past the time I’m there, that would be fine, but you would cover the total costs for those days.
