University Town Accommodation
Accommodation will be available at University Town (UTown) for all ConservationAsia2016 participants. We strongly encourage you to stay at the UTown residences as they are far more affordable than alternative forms of accommodation in Singapore. Further, the rooms provided at UTown are within a 2-3 minute walk from the venue itself as well as a variety of restaurant/cafe choices. Access to public transportation (buses and the MRT) is also convenient.
As part of our ongoing efforts for sustainability, all rooms offered are non-airconditioned in the interest of reducing the carbon footprint of this conference. Instead, each room has a ceiling fan for ventilation and access to the air-conditioned common floor lounge. Wired internet will be available in each room and university Wi-Fi will be available in the common lounge.
Two types of rooms are available:
