Linens

Groups may request linens; they will be placed in the room prior to your arrival. A linen packet contains one each of a pillow, pillowcase, fitted sheet, flat sheet, bath towel, hand towel, soap, plastic cup, and a bath mat (if necessary). Linen packets must be arranged by the main group leaders and cannot be provided on an ad-hoc basis to individual campus guests.

MicroFridges

Each unit contains a MicroFridge, which is a combination microwave/mini-fridge. Guests may use the mini-fridge for medication or beverages. Please note that adult groups are allowed alcohol, but it may only be consumed privately within the residential unit; it is not allowed into the common/public areas within the residence halls or other campus areas.

Kitchens & Lounges

Within your residence hall, all common spaces are free to use. There is no reservation process; they’re first-come, first-serve. Please keep in mind that you may be sharing the hall with another group. Groups are responsible for fines related to damages or excessive trash.

Internet Access

Adult guests will be provided a unique username and password upon arrival. This login info is to be used on the eduroam WiFi network. Note that the purpose of internet use is meant to be business communication (such as email). The bandwidth is not necessarily meant to support streaming or gaming.

If youth groups require individual WiFi access for learning, then it may be provided. Please contact the Office of Conference Services for more information.

Laundry

Laundry facilities are available in each residential community free of charge.
