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. Rates are based on double occupancy. (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. One set of linens (sheets, pillowcase, blanket, towel, and washcloth) is provided.

All housing rates include delicious and wholesome meals served in the Olive Dame Campbell Dining Hall.

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 an inability to climb stairs.

Our housing and meal rates, per person, are as follows:
