We are pleased to let you know that we worked hard with our school to provide a reduced rate for an on-campus housing option at a rate of $50 per night. Rooms will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.

While rooms are very basic, you can expect them to be clean and functional. All rooms are private, unless you chose to share one. However, bathrooms are shared amongst all guests, which can be 2-4 at any given point. Each room has access to a shared common space and kitchen. Additional amenities can be read below.
