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 AASTCS 5: Radio Exploration of Planetary Habitability in Indian Wells, California, 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.
