* residence accommodation

U90, the main residence building on campus at University of Ottawa is a sought-after 
accommodation.  Not only is U90 reasonably priced, it is also close to the talks and tutorials.
More importantly, it is in the same building as the hacker lounge. Need to duck back to 
your room to grab something?  It is only minutes away. Most speakers and developers
stay in residence.

More rooms in U90 have recently become available because non-BSDCan groups have 
cancelled their reservations.

NOTE: We have no financial interest in room occupancy and it is not related to the costs
of other conference facilities. We know how much those who stay in residence love it, and
want others to take advantage of rooms which are now available.

There is no criteria for joining the hacker lounge. You do not have to be a coder. You 
do not have to be a contributor.  Come along. All are welcome.  Bring an extension cord
if you can.  WIFI is freely available.

* First time at BSDCan?

If this is your first BSDCan, we recommend you attend the 'Newcomers orientation and 
mentorship' session on Thursday night at 6pm (location to be decided).  Join other first-timers
and many long-time attendees who will help you decide where to go, what to do, and especially
what not to miss!  There are soooo many things to do in Ottawa and at BSDCan.
