Dietary Restrictions:
We will do our best to provide accommodate allergies, dietary restrictions, and any other dietary preferences and observances noted in your conference registration. Please ask a volunteer at meals and breaks if you have questions.

If you received a food-related sticker in your registration packet, this means that we are keeping a meal aside for you to ensure that you have food that satisfies your dietary needs. Put this sticker on the back of your name tag. During meals, please stand in line with the other participants. When you get to the front, simply show your sticker to any volunteer or committee member and we will get your meal for you.


Quiet Rooms:
We know that a conference can be quite overwhelming sometimes. If you need a place to rest and catch your breath, Jefferson 425 is a quiet room for the entire duration of SPIN UP. For the entire duration of CUWiP, Science Center 116 and Northwest B107 will be reserved as quiet rooms.
