A Century of Revolutionary Change (1917-2017) - Accommodation



There is a wide range of accommodation available in Canberra both on campus and in the city nearby. Conference participants are responsible for organising their own accommodation. For those wishing to stay on campus, we recommend booking early as spaces are limited.


University House ($135 per night) - University House is our recommended option. It is well-located and has good facilities. Please book directly with University House but advise the conference organisers of your booking, as we have had several rooms set aside for conference participants.

Toad Hall ($70 per night) - Toad Hall is a budget on-campus option. However, availability is limited so participants wanting to stay here should contact Toad Hall promptly.
