There are other hotels available in Fort Collins CO, though they not within walking distance of the 2018 symposium venue at Colorado State University. However, if you are interested in other accommodations in Fort Collins, we would highly recommend finding an option close to the MAX bus system,which would allow you to use your complimentary three day MAX bus system pass to easily commute to the 2018 symposium venue.


Denver International Airport (DIA), the major airport in Colorado, is located an hour and a half south of Fort Collins, Colorado. Upon arrival at DIA, there are several options for transportation to Fort Collins and Colorado State University, including a host of rental car companies. Regular and reasonably priced shuttles also run between DIA and all major hotels/locations along the Front Range, including the hotels we recommended above, through Green Ride Co.

Once you have arrived in Fort Collins, your symposium registration includes a three-day pass valid on the local MAX Bus Rapid Transit Service, which provides quick and convenient access to Fort Collins sights like Old Town and useful amenities.  Learn more about Fort Collins, Colorado.

All on-campus parking options at Colorado State University are run through a paperless, electronic permit system by Parking Services.

In lieu of physical permits, we are required to collect license plate numbers for any vehicles that will be parked on-campus throughout the duration of this conference. You can:

  • Provide your license plate number at the time of online registration.
  • Contact Conference & Event Services ahead of time via email or call at 970-491-6222 to do so.
  • Provide it at on-site registration when you are here on campus (renting a car, for example).

If you’ve selected the on-campus housing option, once you’ve provided your license plate number, your vehicle will be valid to park in all ‘Q’, ‘W’, ‘X’ and ‘Z’ parking zones. If you purchased the upgraded parking permit option, your vehicle will be valid to park in the ‘A’ lots north and south of the Student Center. Neither permit is valid in metered/Pay-to-Park zones or the ‘A’ parking zone directly west of Moby Arena.

Colorado State University and the conference organizers cannot guarantee that you will not receive a parking violation if you do not provide your license plate number prior to conference registration.
