Connections Housing is the only official housing agency for the Online Learning 2018 Conference. BEWARE of possible Hotel Fraud.

There are “unofficial” companies aggressively pursuing attendees to book hotel rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees have fallen prey to these companies and have either:  been relocated with little or no warning, lost their significant deposits, not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked, not had the hotel they thought they had booked. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk.  If you have been contacted, please let us know at 800-262-9974 or 404-842-0000.
