How can I get a meal ticket?

To ensure a hassle-free dining experience, we’ve made arrangements for conference attendees to claim meal tickets at registration. Simply request a meal ticket at the registration desk and conveniently pay for it at the dining hall of your choice using cash or card. Every conference attendee is eligible to claim a meal ticket at the registration desk.

For campus contacts interested in purchasing tickets in advance for their students, please reach out to Alice Feldman, our conference coordinator. Campus contacts can secure bulk tickets by bringing a paper check made out to UMass Dining Services to the conference registration desk.
To streamline the process, we kindly ask student presenters to confirm your meal ticket request in your acceptance package by the conference’s in-person registration deadline of March 29th.
