Book housing now for GCCBOSC 2018.

Got kids?

GCCBOSC 2018 enthusiastically welcomes your kids (and offers childcare), but the Reed College dorms do not. The dorms have a strict no minors policy, so if you are bringing your kids you'll need to stay off campus.

See Children at GCCBOSC 2018 for lodging options, childcare and more.



If you are staying on campus breakfast at the Reed College Commons Cafe is included with your room. Breakfast can also be purchased at the cafe if you are staying off campus.


Lunch is included with your training and meeting registrations and will be at the Reed College Commons Cafe or catered by Bon App├ętit. If you are on campus but are not registered for the day's event then you can also purchase lunch here.

We don't yet know if lunch will be provided during CollaborationFest.


Except for the conference dinner on Thursday (included with meeting registration), dinner is not included in your event registrations. There are a number of restaurants and pubs in the nearby Woodstock neighborhood, including these recommendations. The Reed College Commons Cafe will also be open on select nights for dinner.
