Hotel & Travel


Important Hotel Notice: Experient is the Official Housing Provider for NACUFS 2018 National Conference. The National Association of College & University Food Services has worked diligently with the hotels in Providence, RI to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company or housing provider other than Experient is not approved by NACUFS. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of, and report any unauthorized solicitation to NACUFS or Experient.


The housing deadline has now passed.

For changes to existing reservations or to cancel your reservation, please contact your confirmed hotel directly. See your e-mail confirmation for the hotel cancellation policy applicable to your reservation.

If you have not secured a hotel reservation, you may contact aRes Travel, Experient's external housing partner, for citywide hotel availability at non-event rates. Click here to be directed to aRes. Hotel rates, deposit policies, and cancellation policies will differ from the originally contracted hotels.

Take advantage of the neighborhood feel of downtown Providence and book at one of the 7 hotels in the NACUFS block. Conference participants will be at all of the hotels and will help to build the community.
