SEU Congress: Roommate Connection

Do you want to attend the congress but you are a first time attendee and don’t know anyone? Or, are you anxious about the cost and would appreciate an opportunity to save a little money? Well, consider sharing your hotel room with a potential roommate and you will be able to reduce your costs and expand your network and meet a colleague who could potentially become a great friend.


To connect you with potential roommate(s) for SEUCongress 2017 contact Carolina Torres (member of the SEUCommunication Committee) by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. using the subject line “SEUCongress 2017 Roommate Connection” with your name, contact mail adress, the link to your LinkedInProfile and your planned travelling dates to Dublin. Due to the high demand on accomodation in general in Dublin and the prices structure we encourage you strongly to book earlier than you usually do, hence the deadline to submit Roommate requests is also earlier: 30 January 2017.


We will set up a list with your information details mentioned above and forward this list by 31 January 2017 to all the people who are interested in a “Roommate Connection” – from this point onwards it is up to you to connect with each other. Of course we would like to point out that we cannot assume any responsibilities for finding you a roommate, neither ensuring that your roommate keeps with the commitment. But of course, as a matter of good manners, it is expected to keep your commitment. It is recommended that you confirm your congress registration and travel plans in advance before committing to another Roommate.



Thank you and we look forward to

helping you with this part of your congress experience!
