To maximize fun and community building, we encourage you to stay on campus at Dalhousie University. The LeMarchant Place residence has accessible and single, two, three and four-bedroom suites. Note that you are a young adult when you sign up for accommodations and staff will do their best to place young adults together. See the Accommodation page for more information about costs and options. Home hospitality is also available on a first-come-first-serve basis – sign up on the registration form and you’ll be contacted.

Accommodations are handled by Dalhousie University and not by CUC staff. Book your room online directly with Dalhousie University, using promo code CUC20 – please book your accommodations AFTER you have completed the conference registration.

About the CUC Conference:

Every two years, Canadian Unitarian Universalists gather together for a weekend-long conference filled with opportunities for learning, connection, and spiritual growth. The conference is multi-generational, but there will be numerous events throughout the weekend that are held specifically for young adults. For a description of all young adult and multigen events, see the YA Events & Activities page.

The conference theme is Making Waves! Building on the imagery of The Ripple Effect, the CUC’s campaign on water and its related environmental issues, this theme encourages and challenges UUs to make waves that practice radical inclusion, challenge the status quo, and push us to remain relevant into the future. 

Travel Tip: 

  • Flights: the earlier you book, the cheaper the flight. Check travel search sites for competitive prices. Flight prices soar in the few weeks before your travel dates. If you are applying for a subsidy to go to Chorus, apply now, or latest by March 15!
  • Train: the train is a great way to travel! Check out Casey’s Train Travel Tips for getting to Halifax, and use discount code 14017, which gives you a 10% discount. And book sooner rather than later!
