Due to university policies, we have been warned against having people sleeping at the venue. Don’t worry though, we are going to have an external venue to sleep in: Galvanize Boulder. We are working on scheduling buses to/from Galvanize. You will be able to get some relaxing time there. We will also have buses to/from Main campus for those of you that may want to go to sleep to your dorms.
