Conferences and Groups
Stay on campus with your group
One of the advantages of planning a conference or group event at Dalhousie University is that we can accommodate your whole group in our traditional or suite-style residences. In addition to the benefit of affordable rates, staying on campus ensures you're close to meeting and event venues and provides your group with easy access to some of our campus amenities.
After signing your contract with Conference Services you have two options for managing overnight booking arrangements.
- Individually-billed accommodations
With this option, you book a number of rooms for the dates of the event and provide your delegates with the details to make their own individual reservations. Delegates pay for their accommodations upon check in.
- Master-billed accommodations
This option requires you to book and pay for all rooms in the event room block. Payment is due in full upon check in and you're responsible for cancelling extra rooms as per the contract.
In Halifax, guests have the option to choose between our traditional-style residence rooms and our new suite-style residence rooms. Each option provides guests with a private room at an affordable rate.
|Traditional-style residence||Suite-style residence|
|Private single and double* rooms||Private 2, 3 and 4-bedroom suites|
|Shared co-ed washrooms||Private three-piece washrooms|
|Downtown location||Air conditioning|
|Howe Hall, Risley Hall and Gerard Hall||LeMarchant Place|
*Please note that a double room is a room with two single beds.
"I traveled with a group of high school students with safety being my top priority. My mind was set at ease when we arrived at Dalhousie University. Campus security was helpful and the dorms were well kept. It was a great location for us to go out and enjoy the sights of Halifax by foot and we look forward to returning next summer."
