Travel Information and Reimbursements - Universities

Hotel accommodations for the universities will be at the Hampton Inn located minutes from the UToledo main campus and immediately off of I-475 (right next to Holiday Inn Express & Suites). Please call 419-214-5555 to confirm your rooms and ask for the UToledo Invitational Sales Competition block. 

    • Hotel reservations in the UTISC block at the UTISC approved rate need to be made by each university by January 28, 2022 to guarantee space and UToledo reimbursing the room.  UToledo is reimbursing for 2-3 guest rooms per university for Thursday night and Friday night. Incidentals, extra nights, and booking outside of the UTISC block/rate are the responsibility of the guest. The rooms that are covered will be based on the mix of who is competing (student competitors of the same gender are required to share a room) and will include 1 faculty room.
    • The hotel block includes standard rooms and suites.  The suites are very spacious, and some of the suites have 2 queens and 1 sleeper sofa.  If you are bringing alternates that match the genders of your competitors, we suggest the suites so you can avoid paying for the extra room(s).
    • The Hampton Inn has free hot breakfast daily and free high speed internet/wireless in the guest rooms and lobby.
    • The Hampton Inn will provide space on Saturday to hold luggage after check-out.

Reimbursements will be made for airfare (2 competitors and 1 faculty) OR mileage (1 vehicle).  Airfare booked after the deadline will be reimbursed on a sliding scale. 

Airfare must be economy/coach arriving at the Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) and booked by January 28, 2022.   The Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) has better service and is less than 1 hour from the hotel and UToledo main campus. 

Mileage will be reimbursed for one vehicle for those who are only driving and will be based on the government rate.

Universities that are flying may also submit for reimbursement of driving travel in the form of a rental vehicle or Uber/Lyft/Taxi with a limit of $200.  If submitting the Uber/Lyft/Taxi route, we will only reimburse for one round trip each day between the main campus and hotel (plus one round trip DTW and entertainment). 

Missing students during Coaching/Interviewing Sessions, Career Fair, etc will impact reimbursements as will faculty coaches who miss judging.

REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS - submit by March 31, 2022
