This year, NCA is working with the Visit Baltimore housing bureau, and all reservations must be made by using the link provided or by calling the Visit Baltimore housing bureau. Reservations cannot be made directly with the hotels. There are a limited number of discounted student rooms available at a reduced rate at the Hilton. Discounted student rooms will be assigned on a random lottery basis. For more information, visit the Hotel and Travel Information webpage. Convention sessions will be held at the Hilton and the Baltimore Convention Center, which are connected via an enclosed skybridge.
