2017 Society for Minimalist Music 6th International Conference Accommodations

Please find two recommended lodging options below. We recommend arriving Wednesday, June 21 in the afternoon, in time for the opening concert. Papers begin Thursday morning and conclude Sunday at noon, followed by a marathon concert into Sunday night. We recommend departing on Monday morning, June 26.

Hilton Garden Inn Knoxville/University

The Hilton Garden Inn is the closest accommodation option to the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center (where all conference papers will take place). Walking from this hotel to the music school takes approximately 5-7 minutes (walking slightly uphill past an excellent coffee shop, The Golden Roast).

Laurel Residence Hall: University of Tennessee Apartments ($50/night per person)

As a more affordable housing option, we are pleased to offer the University of Tennessee housing to conference participants (festival faculty and participants also stay at Laurel Hall during the festival).

These residence halls are a 15-20 minute walk away from the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center (where all conference papers will take place). When considering this 15-20 minute walk, please also know that Knoxville ranges from around 70-90° F in June.

These 2-bedroom apartments include private bedrooms and shared bathrooms and kitchens (see the floor plan below). Because these rooms include full kitchens, you can further save on costs by cooking and eating some meals in your apartment.

We have 40 spaces available (2 occupants per unit), and these rooms are first come, first served. If you would like to reserve this room option, please email minimalism2017@niefnorf.org with

  • (1) your name
  • (2) your arrival and departure dates (We recommend arriving Wed. June 21 and departing Mon. June 26.)
  • (3) a preferred apartment-mate (who must also send an email confirming their wish to share an apartment with you).

If you do not list a preferred apartment-mate, we will pair you with another conference participant. If you have any questions about this housing option, please email minimalism2017@niefnorf.org
