Ninth Biennial Conference of the Urban History Association

The Urban History Association has secured blocks of rooms at two Columbia hotels for conference attendees.

924 Senate Street
Columbia, SC 29201
Conference Room Rate: $154 per night
(The Hilton Columbia Center is where the bulk of the rooms are reserved. This is where many conference sessions will be located, along with the South Carolina Alumni Center directly next door.)

822 Gervais Street
Columbia, SC 29201
Conference Room Rate: $149 per night (includes free breakfast)
(The Hampton Inn is just one block from the Hilton Columbia Center and the South Carolina Alumni Center. The smaller block of rooms at the modestly lower room rate at the Hampton Inn are intended primarily for graduate students.)

Special Accommodations for International Conference Attendees
We have special accommodations available for a very small number of conference attendees coming from outside the United States or Canada. The University of South Carolina’s International House at Maxcy College is generously providing rooms for $75 a night. Only a very limited number of such rooms are available and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact UHA Executive Director Peter Siskind ( to inquire about the availability of these special accommodations at USC’s International House at Maxcy College.
