Spectrum Conference: Helpful Links

Hotel, Travel & Parking Information

The Spectrum conference will pay for hotel rooms for the first sixteen participants from Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Skidmore College, St. Lawrence University, and Union Colleges only. Hamilton & Colgate students will not need hotel rooms. In order to keep costs low, we will request 4 students to share a hotel room, and any participants beyond sixteen from any of the four colleges mentioned above are requested to solicit funds from their college to cover additional hotel fees.

Participants requiring any form of (dis)ability related accommodations, or those with dietary restrictions should note these on the registration form. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to discuss any accommodations, please contact Amit Taneja at ataneja@hamilton.edu

Student participants will NOT need to make hotel reservations in their own name. The conference team will make the reservations on your behalf after you have completed the registration page. Attendees will stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites - New Hartford, and the hotel is about 12 minute drive from Hamilton College.

Faculty and Staff participants can call and make their own reservations through the hotel. The conference rate is $120 per night, and please let them know that you are reserving a room under the Hamilton College conference rate. Please provide the hotel a direct payment at the time of your reservation.


Participants should arrange for transportation from their college to Hamilton, and from the hotel to the Hamilton campus. We encourage you to contact administrators or your student government to solicit funds for travel. For GPS directions to Hamilton College, please use the following address: 198 College Hill Road, Clinton, NY, 13323. The hotel address is listed below. Please note that participants will arrive directly to Hamilton College for the conference as hotel check in does not start until 3 p.m. Participants will be able to check in to the hotel AFTER dinner on Saturday.
