We offer inexpensive housing in one of the newest student residence halls on campus. There is regular bus service between this residence hall, which is on the south side of campus, and the Alice Campbell Alumni Center, and it is also a pleasant 15 minute walk across campus. If you prefer to stay in a hotel, there are many available, and we suggest two below. Please make your own arrangements with them.
