GA Housing Reservation System is Now Open!
The UUA has contracted rooms at specific hotels near the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. These properties have agreed to offer competitive rates to GA attendees as well as rebates and other incentives that will reduce the overall cost of hosting GA in Pittsburgh. By booking with the GA housing block, you help the UUA meet this goal. Additionally, you benefit from reservation management and customer service offered by Connections Housing.
Reserve your housing today! To book your room today, visit the GA Housing Reservation System. Any reservations canceled after May 22 will be subject to a $50 cancelation fee. The housing reservation system will close for new reservations on May 23.
Welcoming Back the Connections Housing Team
Attendees who book within the UUA Housing block will be in the expert hands of Connections Housing, the official GA 2023 Housing Bureau. The Connections Housing Team is dedicated exclusively to managing the UUA housing blocks and supporting attendees with their housing needs. Your dedicated Connections Housing contact, Robbin Cassell, may be reached at, or via the UUA Housing Call Center at 702-805-6026, Monday through Friday, 9am – 6pm ET. Robbin will be on-site in Pittsburgh PA, and able to assist attendees with housing issues they may encounter during General Assembly.
Connections Housing is the only approved, official housing vendor for UUA General Assembly. We understand that unauthorized housing companies may contact you and advertise cheaper rates or may imply or claim an affiliation with the event. Unfortunately, some past attendees have fallen prey to these companies and were unable to recuperate the money they spent on rooms that did not exist. If you are contacted by any company that is NOT Connections Housing, email us:
Submit a Proposal for the GA Virtual Poster Fair

Stories, initiatives, and examples of inspiring work in Unitarian Universalism will be featured in the Virtual Poster Fair, available to GA registrants through the General Assembly App by Whova. Selections will be made based on the quality of proposals, embrace of diversity and inclusion, potential to provide attendees with concrete and usable tools, and the balance of multiple identity-based and theological perspectives. View last GA’s Poster Fair selections.
The proposal deadline is Wednesday, March 15.
The Banner Parade is Returning!

The Banner Parade is a beloved tradition to kick off General Assembly. For the first time since 2019 we welcome back the traditional procession of banners into the General Session Hall, while including a rolling slideshow of virtual banners. For a fun twist, this year’s Banner Parade will start in the GA Exhibit Hall!
More details to come.
