The AAS Warns about Housing Pirates

A housing pirate is an unauthorized housing provider that often claims a vague affiliation with a conference and offers reduced rates to attendees. The AAS Executive Office is the official housing bureau for the 231st AAS meeting in Washington, DC, and only they can guarantee room reservations and rates.

Be careful when entering into a financial agreement with any unofficial companies, as their legitimacy and policies may be questionable and show management will not be able to provide a resolution to issues related to such reservations. If another company besides the AAS contacts you, please contact the AAS Executive Office immediately at +1-202-328-2010 x104. Use the direct links on this page to ensure your reservation.
