The 207th 2YC3 Web Site hosted by Florida State College at Jacksonville is temporarily off line.
Below is a summary of the web site's content for 2YC3 travelers and tentative Program

Online Registration:



Within 3 miles from JAX curbside are 22 Hotel/Motels for 2YC3 Travelers all located on Airport Road heading toward I-95. Most provide free shuttle service to and from the airport or to River City Mall just east of I-95. 2YC3 travelers may be able to obtain lower rates through Online Travel websites, but most of these local hotels only have one or two rooms available through those websites for the cheaper rate, so go for it and book now!.

All 22 hotels are North Campus Commercial Partners, but 207th Accommodation's Team suggests two who have blocked rooms at a special conference rate, one high end and one budget priced:

Florida State College @ Jacksonville's North Campus:

It is located about 7 miles from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) curbside and between six to seven miles from JAX's 22 hotel/motel row, including a major shopping mall. FSCJ-North is about 8 to 10 miles north of downtown Jacksonville
