Formerly the DoubleTree Hotel, the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference was bought in 2009 by the university. The building includes a restaurant open to the public, function halls, year-round hotel rooms and residence hall space. It is located in downtown Lowell and is the site of many university and community events.
