Travel and Housing
When will I find out where my delegation will be housed at Triennium?
We will send your housing information to you in early July 2016 if not before. Assigning housing for approximately 5000 participants, by delegation, denomination, special need, gender, age – takes a bit of time. Several weeks to be exact. Purdue will send an email to the registrars letting them know their assigned residence hall.
Where can I find the addresses for Purdue’s residence halls?
Be on the lookout for the document on the PYT Website. Once the specific residence halls have been assigned we will post the list (which includes addresses) under Registration. This will not be posted until all of the housing assignments have been completed.
Who assigns roommates for the event?
You do! When you register your group, you will have the opportunity to assign roommates.
How many participants can be assigned to each room?
Plan for each room housing two Triennium participants.
What happens if I have an odd number of participants in my group and one of my participants doesn’t have a roommate?
Purdue will assign these participants a roommate from another delegation. We will do our best to keep your delegation together in the residence hall. If you do not want a roommate assigned to you or another participant’s room then you can opt for a single room and pay the single room cost.
Can youth and adults room together?
No. The only exception is when a youth requires a full-time caregiver. If this is the case, you will need to indicate this in your registration and be available to offer proof that the young person needs a caregiver and that the parents/guardians of the young person have given written permission.
Can adult advisors who are married room together?
No. Males and females will live in separate areas of the residence halls and therefore married couples will not be able to share a room. If there is a medical reason that requires one of the adult advisors to require a caregiver, please email our national registrar: [email protected]
How much does it cost to replace a lost residence hall key?
Will the residence halls provide bed linens, pillows, and towels?
Yes! One bath towel and washcloth, as well as a set of sheets is provided on opening day. If you are picky about towels or need more than one – we suggest you toss an extra in your luggage.
Will the residence halls provide soap?
No. Please bring soap. Soap is very important.
If my delegation is flying, which airport do we to fly into?
Indianapolis International Airport. You can fly into Chicago airports – but you will need to remember that you have to make your own bus arrangements to and from Purdue. See below for the “how” to do this.
How do I get my delegation from the Indianapolis airport to Purdue?
We will post a form titled AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION under the REGISTRATION area of the PYT website. Purdue is moving from an in house transportation office to an outsourced mode. Once we have that information we will post it online. You are welcome to find another bus company or airport shuttle company to transport your group to and from Purdue. Using Google or another similar search system you will find many options. It’s likely that you can do the research online just as quickly and check that item off – instead of waiting for Purdue’s new information.
Does Purdue provide transportation from the Chicago Airports to Purdue?
No. If you fly into Chicago, you will need to arrange your own transportation to Purdue.
Is there a PYT Airfare Discount or official airline?
Can my delegation stay on campus if we need to arrive the night before due to travel schedules?
Yes! If you are arriving early, you can stay Monday night (July 18th) in your assigned residence hall. You will need to indicate your early arrival when you register. Talk to Molly about this! At the end of the conference, you will be billed directly for the extra night: if you need pricing please ask. Before the conference officially begins, you can purchase meals in your assigned dining hall (pay the dining hall directly for your meals) or arrange for meals on your own.
Is there money available to help delegations travel from long distances?
UPDATE: TRAVEL POOL funds are no longer available. Yes. There is a very modest amount of funding available for groups traveling long distance (over a days drive generally). Travel Pool Grant information is located on the Triennium website under the Registration tab.
Which hotel do you recommend for my bus driver?
We do not recommend a specific hotel for bus drivers. You can find a number of modestly priced hotels/motels online. There are more options in Lafayette as opposed to West Lafayette (Purdue is located in West Lafayette).
