Located north of, and relatively close to, the Campus Center, the North Residential area is the other convenient on-campus lodging choice at a competitive, discounted rate of $62/night + fees and taxes. This residential area contains “suite-like,” air-conditioned apartments. Each apartment includes four single bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a shared living room/kitchen area. Coin-operated laundry is located in the same or an adjacent building, and linens/towels will be available for your use during your stay at $12 per set. Key and card deposits will be required. We have blocked out 50 single rooms (though we can increase this number with higher demand) for each evening of Wednesday (June 17), Thursday (June 18), Friday (June 19), and Saturday (June 20).
