IOHA 2018, Memory & Narration
The XX International Oral History Association Conference
University of Jyväskylä, Finland 
June 18–21, 2018



Jyväskylä has a wide range of hotels to choose from at prices to suit all budgets. Hotel rates include taxes, a buffet breakfast, free wifi and often the opportunity to use a gym and a guest sauna as well. It is also possible to choose inexpensive summer hostel accommodation or Airbnb which would be particularly attractive for participants on low budgets.

Accommodation is not included in the conference registration fee. All guests are required to make their own accommodation arrangements.

We have made block reservations and negotiated special rates for the conference participants for 
17–21 August 2018 in the hotels featured below. For the discount prices, please take a note of the given date, use the discount code, and contact the hotel directly (booking agencies do not recognize the discount code). Please note that there is a limited number of special rate rooms available and bookings are solely made “first booked, first reserved basis” – thus booking well in advance is recommended.
