If you wish, you may experience campus life by reserving a room in one of our residence halls during our Orientation for Families program. Rooms are available for single ($50) or double ($60) occupancy. Families must register and pay for an Orientation session in order to reserve accommodations on campus. Please note that you are welcome to stay at a local hotel instead of the residence halls. More information about this option is below.
The rooms available for family members are constructed in a suite configuration: three double-occupancy rooms connect to a common area (living room) with shared bathroom facilities for each suite. Note that each room has two single beds. If you anticipate having three or more people in attendance at Orientation (in addition to your student), make your room reservations accordingly. All bed linens, towels and blankets are included as part of the room rate for families.
If you plan to stay in the residence halls, remember that they are not as luxurious as hotels. You should bring your own alarm clock, toiletries and other personal items. Pets are not allowed in University residence hall and no smoking is permitted. Housing is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. You will receive more information about overnight accommodations in your Orientation information packet mailed to your home address.
There are several hotels near the campus. Please refer to the list provided by the admissions office, though keep in mind it may not be all-inclusive. Contact these hotels directly if you wish to a reserve a room.
