Food & Accomodations

We are pleased to say we’ve partnered with a hotel to get you a special deal on accommodations. The Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront (4700 N. Port Washington Road) is about a 12 minute drive from our conference at UWM.


This hotel is recently remodeled and has a beautiful lounge area the overlooks the Milwaukee River, an in house restaurant (The Anchorage), an indoor swimming pool, and a shuttle bus that will take guests to the conference.

Parking at UWM

There are many parking lots and street parking around the UWM campus. The closest you’re going to get is the Union Garage, right next to the UWM Student Union. The Saturday rate for parking is $1/hour and Sunday is $3 for the entire day.
More info and a map of the garage here:

Coffee and Food

The Union Grind coffeeshop is on Level 2 around the corner from the Union Ballroom and is open 10-2 Sat. (Closed Sun.) The Grind in the Golda Meir Library is open 1-7pm Sunday. While there, check out their display of paranormal items from their archives! We also recommend nearby Roast Coffee on Locust and Fuel Café, a short drive away on Center St.

Union Station can be found on Level G and offers sandwiches, snacks, beverages and is open 10-4 Sat and Sun. The Gasthaus is located in the basement level and offers pub food and alcohol and is open 11-8 Sat and Sun.

Nearby Oakland Avenue has many food options including Sal’s Pizza, Noodles and Co., Qdoba, Cousins Subs, Oakland Gyros, and many more.

Sala is a great dinner option very close to the Union, open for those in town Friday and for dinner on Saturday.
