Housing portal keeps crashing every time I try to access it. Does anyone know what's going on or if there will be a fix soon? Thank you!

I don't have any issues with this, have you tried using a different browser?

This was a few days ago... I did try a different browser (went between Firefox, Chrome, and eventually Edge) - still nothing. It's been working fine since then, though. Thank you!

I do not wish to buy a badge unless there is down town available.
Anyway of confirming any thing open without a purchase?

No. You need a badge to access the housing portal, and you also want to note that the date for badge refunds has passed.

At this point, the chances of getting an in-block downtown room are almost Zero.

To guarantee downtown, you will almost certainly have to go out-of-block, and pay out-of-block prices.

Sorry man. There have been one or two rooms that have popped up in the portal but they are few and far between. There is no transferring of rooms this year, so your only chance is to get lucky at the portal.

But there is zero guarantee of it. And at this point, I wouldn't hold my breath. 

You might have luck looking for a roommate who already has a room downtown - but badges are projected to sell out pretty soon, so you're running a tight gamble either way.

Out of block rooms were still available at the Homewood Suites downtown as of this morning.

Right now on Trivago, Residence Inn Indianapolis Downtown and Holiday Inn Indianapolis Downtown both have rooms during GenCon dates for under $300/night (Residence Inn's rooms are $219/night).

After updating to a different (cheaper) hotel, I'm no longer able to access/see any hotel availability through the portal except for my own hotel - I thought everyone was supposed to have access until 7/15 or 7/16.

To specify, this message appears when I'm trying to look at the current accessibility:
To change hotels please cancel this reservation and create a new one.
