HOUSING:

Dorm housing is available on the University of Washington campus in McMahon Hall, conveniently located within 0.25 mile of most of our on-campus programming.  A 3-night stay (Thursday June 22 arrival, Sunday June 25 check out) is available at the following rates: 

  • Shared double room with shared bathroom: $150.75 per person ($50.25/night per person);
  • Private room with shared bathroom: $229.50 ($76.50/night).

There are additional options for 4-night stays in the registration to accommodate various travel schedules (allowing for the addition of either Wednesday night or Sunday night). Per person rates for Wednesday night are as listed above ($50.25 per person for shared double room; $76.50 for private room); Sunday night rates are $3 higher ($53.25 per person for shared double room; $79.50 for private room). Reservations for dorm housing must be received by April 28; availability is limited, and cannot be guaranteed for housing requests received after this date.

Please note that all dorm accommodations have shared bathrooms and wired internet (accessed via bring-your-own ethernet cord).  Meals are not included and can be purchased from the dining hall in the basement of McMahon Hall for an additional charge; additional neighborhood restaurants, bars, and shops are available approximately 0.5 mile from McMahon Hall.

In our registration form, you will have the option to request a preferred roommate.  If you select a double room without requesting a specific roommate, NET will assign a roommate for you.

Check-in time is after 2pm and Check-out is 11am.  If you need to make special arrangements outside of the scheduled times please email events@ensembletheaters.net.

 

TRAVEL SUBSIDIES:

We are pleased to offer a limited number of travel subsidies to eligible NET members on a first-come, first-served basis to support your attendance at PAST FORWARD:

  • 1 subsidy per NET member (i.e. 1 per ensemble member company);
  • Amount of subsidy requested can be up to $100 for ensemble/affiliate members, and up to $50 for individual/student members, based on your actual round-trip travel expenses to the event location.

Eligibility:

To be eligible for a travel subsidy, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Current NET member in good standing (at time of request and at time of payment);
  • Located 150+ miles from event site in Seattle, WA;             
  • Complete and pay for your event registration before submitting subsidy request.  

Process for Subsidy Requests & Payments:

  • Once you complete and pay for your registration, submit a Travel Subsidy Request Form and attach PDF copies of your travel receipts (air, bus, or train).  If you are traveling by car, you can either submit fuel receipts after the event or use the 2017 standard mileage rate of $0.535 per mile.  If using the latter method, please submit a Google map image of your route that shows the total mileage as your receipt.
  • NET staff will review your request and let you know within 2-3 business days if your subsidy request is approved. 
  • NET will issue your travel subsidy check to you onsite in Seattle if we receive your travel receipts no later than June 5, 2017; for travel receipts submitted after this date, we will mail your check to you within 10-14 business days of the end of the event.
