Dorm Check-In

Keys can be picked up at CMU's Summer Conference Office in the Morewood Gardens A Tower, located at the corner of Morewood Avenue and Forbes Avenue. Look for the signs! The office is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m, after that time your keys will be available from the desk attendant on duty.


A permit to park on the Carnegie Mellon Campus (whether you have already paid for one or not) can be picked up when you get your keys. In the meantime, parking is available at meters in the lot behind Morewood Gardens, reachable off Forbes Ave.

Parking is available at the Wyndham Garden for hotel guests. There will be a limited number of additional spaces, but local participants are urged to park at the public garage located one Forbes Ave. about two blocks east of the hotel.

Membership Dues

Membership is included with registration.


1. Wyndham Garden Hotel (site of all conferences sessions):

$99 per night, per room for 1 or 2 people. Call 877-662-6242 and mention that you are attending the Cultural Studies Association meeting. Reservations must be made by May 14 to qualify for the
conference rate.

2. Carnegie Mellon University Dorm:

$28/night for Single Occupancy with linen
$18.75/night for Double Occupancy with linen

The dorm is 1.4 miles from the hotel. It is an easy walk through the CMU and Pitt campuses and adjoining business district, though obviously much more pleasant in good weather. We hope to provide a shuttle service at the beginning and the end of the day. There are also city buses that take you within a couple blocks at either end for $1.75 each way. The dorm is not air conditioned. The average high temperature for these dates in Pittsburgh is 78F and the average low is 54F. The weather is quite varied at this time of year. It can be very hot and humid, or it can be cool and rainy.

Book Exhibit

The Founding Conference of the Cultural Studies Associations will include a book exhibit specially organized by the Library of Social Science (LSS). LSS seeks your input in developing a comprehensive collection of titles. The book exhibit will include publications encompassing the full range of topics on culture in relation to social, aesthetic, historical, economic, political, or semiotic conditions and issues. It will bring together recent and significant titles and contribute substantially to the intellectual value of our conference. We especially wish to include BOOKS WRITTEN BY AUTHORS WHO WILL BE SPEAKING AT THE MEETING. If you are an AUTHOR and wish to have your book included - or are aware of recent titles in the field that should be included in this display - please complete and return this form.
