Housing & Meals

From charming 1930s buildings to more contemporary housing, and everything in between, you're sure to feel at home while staying with us. We have an eclectic variety of a dozen student houses sprinkled throughout our campus. All are air-conditioned and within walking distance to studios and the Dining Hall. (A limited number of private single rooms are available).

We provide five levels of housing in a range of prices, from dormitory-style rooms with shared baths to rooms with private baths, such as historic Hill House and Energy Star certified Field House. All housing rates include delicious and wholesome meals served in the Olive Dame Campbell Dining Hall. One set of linens (sheets, pillowcase, blanket, bath towel and wash cloth) is provided.

Nestled in the woods, our campground is open year-round and provides sites for tents, campers, and RVs up to 34 feet. A bath house provides hot and cold water, restrooms, and showers.

Our registrar makes every effort to accommodate housing requests, giving priority to handicap needs. Although we guarantee your choice of housing level, we are not able to guarantee specific houses or rooms. When you register for your class, please be sure to notify us of any physical limitations you may have, such as inability to climb stairs.

Our food service will be fundamentally different from our typical family-style dining. We plan to offer a combination of staggered shifts, to-go options, designated seating, and the use of outdoor spaces during warmer weather. Rest assured, our dining hall staff will continue to provide full service of fresh and delicious meals, served three times a day.

There's nothing like staying on campus to fully immerse yourself in the Folk School experience, away from the outside world.
