Hotel rooms - hotel De Werelt 

There is a limited number of hotel rooms (shared or private) available for April 4 at Congrescentrum De Werelt. Other hotels in the direct area of De Werelt.

NB: because of the limited availability of rooms we do not offer hotel rooms to MSc/BSc students. We make an exception for students who live too far away to travel back home for the night (e.g. Maastricht/Groningen), whom we can offer a shared room. Please contact Femke Francissen if this applies to you.

NB2: if you participate in the BioSB PhD retreat on April 3 and registered for a private room for the retreat, but for a shared room for the conference, please be aware that you might have to move to another room or share your room for the night of April 4.

During the registration procedure you can indicate if you would like to share a room with a specific person by filling out his or her name and e-mail address. If you leave this field open the organizers will choose a roommate for you.
