Accommodation - Contacts 

As the conference drawn near, you now need to sort out your accommodation in advance. This page provides you the basic details of accommodation in Grahamstown. The list that we provide here is not exhaustive, BUT includes that accommodation which does not easily pop up when you search. There are many more accommodation services providers in town that you can work with - including hotels like Graham Hotel and Victoria Hotel.         

To help you get a wider choice, we provide here another link in addition to the service providers that we listed below. Please check out this website: for more information. Please contact the service providers directly and make payment and other arrangements with them. 

The Rhodes University Conferences Office also provides some accommodation from the Gilbert Street B&B on Campus as well as from their well maintained, secure and affordable student accommodation.
