Hotel check-in will be 4:00-5:30pm local. If you are organizing your own transportation, please keep in mind San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City all can have significant amounts of traffic.

 We suggest booking flights that arrive on Monday no later than 2:30pm local to ensure you will not be late to check-in. Depending on the activity, the cohort may be leaving the hotel at 5:30pm local.

Students will be staying in the following hotels in double rooms with a different roommate each week. This is to help facilitate networking beyond venture teams.

Quarter Zero students are considered guests of the respective hotels, and agree to act with a high degree of professionalism at all times. Students are expected to adhere to a 10:00 PM - 6:00 AM quiet time policy and are not permitted to leave the hotel after nightly check-ins without the express permission of QØ staff and the presence of another student. Please also note that due to security & hotel agreements, students are prohibited from switching room assignments.


Programming will officially end at 2:30pm local on Fridays. If you are organizing your own transportation, programming will end at the following locations.

The time at the end of each week is critical to team development and cohort dynamics. Please note students are not permitted to leave early. QØ staff will be available up until 2:30 to assist you, should you need it, but will be departing once the program ends. Depending on the venue, students may be asked to go to a nearby location to wait for late pickups.
