Off-Campus Accommodations

Although most attendees of the International Congress on Medieval Studies stay on the campus of Western Michigan University, many attendees choose to stay in local hotels. The Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites, the main off-campus site, as well as other hotels offer conference rates for Congress attendees. Those wishing to reserve rooms at conference rates need to contact hotels directly. If phoning, please mention that you are attending the International Congress on Medieval Studies.
