Lodging & Travel
All reservations must be made by March 11, 2019. Room blocks will not be held after this date.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR FACULTY ADVISORS: When reserving rooms, be sure say that you are booking for the Cornell Model United Nations Conference and ask to be connected to the hotel's Sales Department. Make your reservation with that operator, not the standard front desk. If you do not do this, you will not benefit from the CMUNC hotel discount and may be told that there are no rooms available. CMUNC has reserved a majority of the rooms in all these hotels. To access these specially reserved rooms, you MUST book through the Sales Department. Please contact the Director-General with any hotel questions using the "Contact Us" page.
Conference hotel accommodations include:
Hilton Garden Inn, Ithaca — 607-277-8900
Clarion Inn (formerly the Ramada) — 607-257-3100
Best Western, University Inn — 607-272-6100
Fairfield Inn — 607-277-1000
Hampton Inn — 607-277-5500
Hotel Ithaca — 607-272-1000
Homewood Suites — 607-266-0000
Schools are responsible for reserving their own hotel accommodations. CMUNC has blocked rooms at each of these hotels at a discounted rate. While the conference has blocked approximately enough rooms for the conference, schools should reserve their rooms as far in advance as possible to ensure their top choice and discount rate. CMUNC requires schools to stay in one of these eight hotels as we will not be providing bus service from any other hotel to campus. The only hotel within reasonable, safe walking distance of campus is the Statler Hotel located directly on-campus.
Campus parking permits can be requested in order to accommodate delegates and advisors who do not require hotel rooms; please contact the Director-General via the "Contact Us" page.

For schools who have previously attended CMUNC, please note that in 2011 there was a significant change in which accommodations are handled. Hotels are no longer included in the registration fee and CMUNC staff will no longer be handling reservations directly. Schools are now responsible for making reservations at the hotels. We hope this change makes it easier for schools to deal with their accommodation needs. If you need any help with accommodations, please don't hesitate to get in touch with CMUNC staff.

For International Delegations
CMUNC is thrilled to receive international students every year and annually hosts several delegations from abroad. Please ensure you comply with U.S. Immigration regulations. Remember, all visa information is subject to change and must be confirmed with the U.S. Department of State.
Visitors from countries participating in the visa waiver program do not require a visa. Others should apply for a B-2 (pleasure/tourist) visa from the U.S. Department of State, or your nearest U.S. Consulate. General visa questions should be directed to the U.S. Department of State. Letters confirming that your school's delegates are registered to attend the conference may be required. If so, please contact our Director-General.
