Prices and Other Details
for the 18th Summer Texas Toot - 2016

June 12-18, 2016

Housing

Toot participants will be housed in Concordia's Residence Hall dorm (location H on the campus map...) The accommodations are 2-person suites with private bath, and furnished with a small-size refrigerator and a microwave.

NOTE a change!
Beginning in 2015, Concordia is no longer providing linens. Texas Toot has purchased a limited number of linen sets (sheets, towels, blanket, pillow) that will be available for rent ($25 for the week), but participants who are able are encouraged to bring your own linens. The beds are extra-long twin (XL twin). If you prefer not to stay in a dorm, there are numerous hotels in the surrounding area.

Meals

Concordia's dining facility was completely revamped in 2015! It was already quite good, offering a variety of fresh and prepared foods, as well as accommodating vegetarian diets and other special dietary requirements. We expect the new facility will be even better.

A "commuter" meal plan is offered (lunches and dinners only), in order to encourage commuters to take advantage of the fellowship, conversation, and convenience of the on-campus facilities — all valuable aspects of the workshop experience.

Fees
Deadline for registration (if housing and/or meals are required) is May 21, 2016 — Do-It-Now early registration ends April 25!
Tuition $440 per person "Do-It-Now" tuition (if registration and deposit are received by April 25) OR
$495 per person if registration and deposit are received after April 25

$10 discount for ARS, VdGSA, and EMA members

Bring-a-Friend tuition discount: Invite someone new to come to the Summer Toot! Once he/she registers, you are entitled to a 20% discount on your tuition (10% if this person has attended a Toot before, but has been absent for 5 or more years.)

 
Conference Fee This year, there will be a $55 administrative and facility use fee (not subject to discount) for all participants, whether staying on- or off-campus. This fee will be added in as you make your registration payment; there is no need to write a separate check to Concordia University Texas.
 
NOTE: Final Housing and Meal prices have been established. The single room price is dramatically higher than in past years, due to a pricing restructure by our venue. Double room and meal prices are only modestly higher than before.

Transportation

The Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is approximately 35 minutes by car from the Concordia University campus. Ground transportation from/to the airport is available via shuttle service or taxi.

The Toot staff is available to help you solve transportation quandaries. If you will be flying in, please click here to send us email (or address your own email to transport@toot.org) with your flight times so we can help coordinate those arrangements more efficiently.

If you are driving, see the page of driving directions to Concordia on their own Web site. If you need other assistance with transportation information, please contact us.

There will be a few rooms available for those who need to arrive a day early, or to stay an extra night (around $40 per person for room only). Try to book return flights around mid- to late afternoon on Saturday.


You may register online, but we must receive your deposit check for $100 by postal mail to complete your registration. Deposit is refundable until May 21, 2016.
