There are both on- and off-campus options for accommodation. The on-campus options would be both most convenient (at least in terms of commuting to the conference room) and least expensive. There is a room block that has been reserved until June 19, 2023. The off-campus options listed below are suggestions only and no formal agreement has been made with the respective hotels.
