All SRC sessions, including registration, will take place at Aloft. All other events – the tour and banquet on Friday night – are within a block of this hotel.

On Saturday morning, there will be bagels, muffins, fruit, coffee, tea, and water available; all breaks between sessions will have coffee, tea, soda, water, and cookies. These are provided courtesy of NC State’s English Department.

For anyone not booking with Aloft, the closest alternate hotel is the DoubleTree (Raleigh-Brownstone-University). There is no special conference rate for this hotel. Only 0.3 miles from Aloft, it is likewise close to both the Gregg and our Friday dinner venue.



Parking is available at Aloft, the conference hotel, and is free for day visitors.  Overnight parking costs $8 a night for guests staying at the hotel.

NC State Visitor Lots are also nearby.  For a full list of these lots, click here.  However, the best bet is to first try either the Belltower Lot at NC State or the Ferndell Lot. Both of these are close to the hotel.

There is also parking available at the North Hall Parking Lot on NC State’s campus; this is free nights and weekends, but anyone wishing to use this for Friday should contact Chris Crosbie in advance of the conference to obtain a temporary parking permit ($10, payable to NC State University) at
