Q: What are the deadlines for registration?
A: Registration closes on Monday, July 18, 2022, at 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time. Due to the number of awesome events that we have planned, we are required to provide our vendors and hosts attendance numbers at this time. Make sure to register early!
Q: What do I do if I make a mistake or have questions about my registration?
A: Contact our registration specialists at GORPreg2022@gmail.com
Q: After registering, I realized that I won’t be able to attend GORP. Can I get a refund?
A: We are sorry, but because of our fixed costs, we cannot offer any Friday activities refunds after you have registered. If you have registered, but cannot attend GORP, please let us know. (See next question)
Q: I see there is a no-show fee for events. What’s that all about?
A: Unfortunately, there will be a $75 charge if you register for the banquet on Friday evening and don’t come. If you register for GORP and don’t show up at all, there will be a $200 fee. Except for the optional Friday activities, GORP is free to residents. That means we have a very tight budget and can’t afford to pay for food and rooms that are not being used.
Q: Will there be any other charges?
A: All U of M room key cards must be returned at checkout or there will be a $25 charge per card by the University of Michigan.
Q: Will there be parking available if we drive to Ann Arbor?
A: Yes, we will provide options for parking during your stay here at your own cost. Stay tuned for more information!
Q: What will be the options for rooms during my stay in Ann Arbor? Will I be rooming with my co-residents?
A: We will be staying in University housing, with double occupancy rooms. As we organize everyone together, co-residents will be paired up first, but depending on room availability, you may be paired with residents from another school. We will do all we can to protect everyone’s privacy, but you may get to know some residents better than others. That is the fun part of GORP!
