Summer Housing Rates

On-campus housing accommodations for your conference are available June 1 – August 1. Each residence hall room is typically designed for two guests, however single rooms are also available. Grouped in three areas—west campus, central campus and lakeside—all thirteen of our residence halls are within a short walking distance to dining facilities, meeting spaces and recreational facilities. A member of Residence Life and Housing will work with your conference coordinator to find a facility that best meets your needs.
