Information about accomodation at Carleton University, along with an application form, is available as a downloadable PDF file. Carleton University has a limited number of rooms available for CEA conference participants. Requests must be submitted, along with payment, by April 4, 2003.
The only accommodation options within walking distance of the conference are the university residences and some small bed and breakfasts. With the exception of Southways, all other accommodation options are located in the downtown core. This area is convenient for restaurants and tourist attractions, but is about 8-10 km from campus. The Carleton campus can be reached by taxi (about $12-$15) or city bus. Southway is closer to the airport and located near South Keys Mall. It is a fairly low cost accommodation option. From there, it is possible to access the campus by O-train.

See the Ottawa Hotel Guide for further information on hotels. However, group reservations have only been made with the hotels listed above.
Carleton University is located south of the downtown area. It is about 15 minutes each from the Via Rail station and the Ottawa's Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. Taxi rides from either location to Carleton University's Residence Commons costs approximately $15.00. Taxi fare from the Ottawa (Voyageur) bus terminal to Carleton University is approximately $10.00.
