|Financial Support for Students|
The closest parking for participants is available in Lot K just uphill from the north entrance of University Hall. To get there turn onto campus at the major intersection (4 ways with traffic lights NOT the tee intersection) and follow the road eastward until it veers right - lot K is an immediate left turn. On weekends parking is free. If you wish to park on campus weekdays before or after the workshop for longer than an hour we recommend Lot N where the rate is $6/day. See campus map.
The sessions are in the long main building (University Hall - pale yellow on the campus map) which is nestled in the coulees to the east near the river, down from the level of the prairies.
The University of Lethbridge Conference Services offers very good rates on excellent apartment and town house suites situated on the campus and only minutes from the meeting facilities. The apartment suites have full kitchens (no kitchenware is supplied) as well as ensuite washroom facilities configured in a two or four bedroom configuration. Here is a photo of the common area of a typical suite.
The rates (in 2010) were $50 per person per night for a nice one bedroom apartment or $132 per night for a 3 bedroom townhouse suitable for sharing. For rates, other options and more detailed information see Conference Services. There are also floor plans and views of the suites by selecting either the Aperature Apartments or Aperture Townhouses here.

Payments can be made by cash, money order or Visa/Mastercard.
For off-campus accommodation, University visitors frequently stay at Lethbridge Lodge. This hotel is located downtown, a five minute drive from the University, or about a 30 minute walk from the University through parkland along the river. There are no hotels in West Lethbridge or closer to the University, however, there are many other hotels and motels available, such as in the Days Inn or the Holiday Inn Express downtown. To check out alternatives visit alternate accommodation. Hotels along Mayor Magrath Drive are relatively far away and you would require vehicle transportation to get to the University. Public transit is available to and from the University, but service is limited on weekends especially on Sunday.
Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located just outside of Fort Macleod 30 minutes west of Lethbridge is also highly recommended.
Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park about an hour and a half south-east of Lethbridge has petroglyphs and pictographs, and some impressive the sandstone hoodoos.
Glacier National Park is just an hour and a half south-west of Lethbridge, for those willing to brave the surly American border officials. Going-to-the-Sun Road in the park is one of the most scenic roads in the U.S. North-West but it is only open from late May to early September (consider the free park shuttle available from the visitor center at the east park entrance).
In Lethbridge, the Nikka Yuko Japanese Gardens are a top attraction, as well as, Indian Battle Park and Fort Whoop-Up Interpretive Centre in the river valley down from the University.
