Children under 18 and babysitters are invited to stay for free.

The University will provide basic sheets, towels, a blanket, and a pillow. If you wish to bring any other items, you are welcome to do so.

How many people can stay together?
Guests can request to be placed in suites or apartments in groups of four. You may ask to be near other guests, but we can only accommodate up to four people in one suite/apartment. If you have more than four people in your party, we will do our best to make sure you're next to or across from one another.
