The Department of English at NCSU is the host and host venue for WritersUA East for Content Pros. Classes are not in session at this time and we have the great facilities to ourselves.

Sessions will be held in Caldwell Hall and the adjacent Tomkins Hall. Our initial gathering will be in Caldwell Lounge.


There are many hotels in Raleigh. One of the closest is Aloft. Book directly with the hotel with the promotional code 513261. The DoubleTree Hilton is also very close.

Air Travel & Local Transportation

The Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) is the arrival point by plane.

The GoTransit express bus #100 stops in front of the Aloft Hotel. A 25-minute trip for $2.25.


The closest full-day public parking is at the corner of Hope and Logan. It is $10 for the full day and just one short block from Caldwell Hall. There is another very small lot behind the Memorial Bell Tower. Street parking is limited to 2 hours. NC State Parking info
