Hotels & Hostels
We’ve reserved a block of rooms for your convenience at the Fairfield Inn & Suites at 116 West 28th Street, which is a short walk from the Summit. The block will be available until July 2 but may fill up sooner, so book early to guarantee your spot. Additional room blocks may be added as the event approaches.
New York City has dozens options for accommodations on a budget. HI NYC and the Chelsea International Hostel are both a quick subway ride away from the venue.
Are you traveling to NYC alone or in a pair for the Summit? We can help you find a roommate! Accommodations are always more affordable when you share them, so fill out this form to be matched with other students who are also traveling in from out of town.
Summit attendees share why STF is meaningful in their lives and communities:
"It's the amazing discussions, the friendships, and our passion to change the world that make the #STFSummit one of my favorite events of the year. I'm going home feeling empowered and full of energy to continue to fight for girls' education." - Luciana S.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is interested in starting a chapter or taking action with She's the First on their campus this upcoming year!
Is this for female-identifying people only?
Nope, anyone who wants to see a more gender-equal world should feel welcome!
Can I purchase a single-day ticket?
No, your ticket to STF Summit includes the full program of events Thursday-Saturday.
Can I arrive late/leave early?
You’ll get the most out of the Summit if you plan to be there the whole time. Program will begin at 9:00 am on Thursday and end at 2:00 pm on Saturday so plan your travel accordingly. Email [email protected] if you know you’ll be arriving late.
Are parent chaperones allowed to attend?
Yes, but they need to purchase a separate registration.
This is a student-driven experience & attendees will get the most out of it if they’re able to freely interact & connect with peers, We encourage chaperones to give them the space to do this.
What is included in my ticket?
Admission to the student leadership sessions on Thursday and Friday, lunch and snacks on Thursday and Friday, materials for the public activism campaign on Saturday, and a She's the First t-shirt.
*Not included: transportation, accommodations, breakfast and dinner
