Accommodations & Dining


Our on-campus housing is currently full. You can email us at [email protected] to be placed on the waitlist.

We are pleased to offer housing in a suite-style room in Sigma Hall on Biola University’s campus, just a short walk from the Exhibit Hall and other Convention venues, as well as the cafeteria, which is included with all housing reservations.

Each suite includes two bedrooms, each with two twin beds (an air mattress is available upon request to accommodate three people in one room), a sink, and mirror. With locking doors on each side, a jack-and-jill style bathroom, with a toilet and shower, is shared between the two rooms. Linens (set of sheets and towels for each person) are provided. There is a shared, large lounge with an attached kitchen on each of the three floors.



Each floor features a shared lounge and full kitchen that attendees may utilize.


$63 per person, per night; includes linens plus 3 meals (dinner, breakfast, lunch) at the all-you-can-eat cafeteria
$61 per child, per night (ages 2-9); children under 2 are free


Rooms will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

For stays during the convention dates (Thursday and Friday nights only), the deadline to reserve a room is May 1.

Those needing to reserve a room for the nights of Wednesday, May 8 and/or Saturday, May 11 must do so by April 5.


To aid in your planning for accommodation needs, check-in time for reserved rooms is 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.


Parking is free at Biola University, but approval is required for oversized vehicles and trailers.


Reservations will be made through CHEA by completing this online registration. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Biola University’s all-you-can-eat cafeteria (also known as “Cafe Biola”), featuring a half-dozen food stations with offerings for even the pickiest of eaters, will be available to Convention attendees. Save time by pre-purchasing your individual meal tickets – and purchase meals for the entire day to save! Meal plans are available for purchase by all Convention attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, and speakers.

Breakfast – $8.20
Lunch – $10.50
Dinner – $12.00

All Day Meal Pass – $22.00

Meal Times:
Breakfast: 7:30 – 8:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Dinner: 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

NOTE: If you will be staying on campus in Sigma Hall, three meals (dinner, breakfast, and lunch) are included with each night of your reservation. You do not need to purchase an additional meal plan unless you will need a meal before check-in or after check-out.


Each meal at Cafe Biola features numerous options that will appease both choosy eaters as well as those with dietary restrictions and allergies. From pizza, to the sandwich and salad bar, to comfort food, to the grill (yes, there are french fries), to soups, to the “chef’s table,” and the array of desserts (including the soft-serve ice cream machine that’s always a hit!) and more, no one will leave hungry. Go back as many times as you want to try a little bit of everything prepared by talented and creative chefs and their teams.

Drink stations include milk, juices, and a soda fountain (Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Barq’s Rootbeer, Lemonade, Powerade, and Fuze Iced Tea).
