University of New England


Mary White College 1

On-campus accommodation is subject to availability at the time of booking. We recommend Mary White College, which is five minute’s walk to the conference venue, campus shops, cafes, post office, and Booloominbah Restaurant. The town bus stops at the College, which is nestled high on the side of a hill giving residents picturesque views of Armidale city to the east and rural surrounds to the west. Mary White is also adjacent to a Deer Park and Duck Pond. The rate for standard student style rooms (shared bathroom facilities) at Mary White College is $63.50 per night (room only). Unfortunately rooms with en-suite bathrooms are not available. Participants residing at Mary White College will be provided with breakfast at no extra cost. To book accommodation at Mary White College, click here.

We have reserved a limited number of rooms for conference delegates at the Club Motel and the Sandstock Motor Inn. Please mention the RAAN block-booking if reserving a room at one of these establishments.
