Housing for Summer 2020 will be in Magnolia Hall

We offer University Housing for our summer short course participants for $42/night plus 9.25% tax.   Each participant will have their own bedroom with two twin XL beds.  Each room has a private bathroom, mini-fridge, and microwave.  Each floor has a communal kitchen and free washers and driers (but bring your own detergent!).  Linens are NOT available and you will have to provide your own pillow, sheets (double bed), and towels.
