ISA HR NYC 2016, Hotel and Travel

The conference will be held at Fordham University located at Lincoln Center.

We have secured a limited number of rooms at Fordham's Lincoln Center campus in its newest dormitory, McKeon Hall. These provide individual bedrooms with bathroom facilities that are shared with one other room. The per night, per person rate for these rooms is U.S. $130 (this includes a linen fee and credit card processing fees), and they must be booked for a minimum of two nights. These rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They represent very good value given the cost of accommodation in New York, and can only be booked in conjunction with or after your completed registration for the conference. No refunds are available on these rooms. Reservations for McKeon lodging (contingent upon availability) can be made via the conference web site between 4 January 2016 and 16 May 2016. No reservations will be accepted after 16 May 2016.

Other hotel accommodations are plentiful for a variety of budgets and easy to find on various online services. In particular, we encourage you to explore options at the following hotels, which are located in close proximity to Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus and feature a Fordham rate that is being made available to conference participants: the Empire Hotel, the Hudson Hotel, and the Hotel Belleclaire. When making your reservation, please mention that you are booking your room in connection with the Fordham Human Rights conference to receive the special rate.

Visa Support Letter Requests

Individual conference participants (this includes individuals who are formally listed on the conference program and individuals attending the conference but who are not formally listed on the conference program) are responsible for securing their own travel visas if necessary to attend the conference. You can find out whether you require a visa on the U.S. Department of State’s website.

If you require a letter of invitation to support a visa application, please contact us by email at after you have completed conference registration. As per conference policy, no refunds will be issued on paid registrations.

Letters of invitation will be issued at the discretion of the conference organizers, in accordance with Fordham University policies. The conference organizers can offer no guarantees regarding the issuance of a letter of invitation and the outcome of an individual’s visa application. Normally we will only issue letters of invitation to individuals who are on the program in some capacity and have fully registered. If you have any questions or concerns in this regard, please contact us.

Please be sure to provide sufficient lead time (at least 7-10 business days) to the conference organizers for the processing of a letter in tandem with filing deadlines for your visa application. No letters of invitation will be issued after 16 May 2016.
