We will arrange your accommodations on campus, or in the local area. A large part of the Workshops experience is living and eating with fellow professionals and instructors. Meal times present a unique opportunity to discuss the industry and share ideas with people active in our creativeworlds. In addition, it is important that you are comfortable during your stay so that you may focus on your work. We therefore offer a variety of accommodations on our campus and in the local area to suit almost every taste and budget.
Many student accommodations are within walking distance of the classrooms and dining area. Our free van service makes the rounds each morning, noon and evening (mid-June through early September). The Workshops' accommodations are limited to approximately 125 beds and are assigned on a first-come basis. Please indicate your lodging preference on the application, and we will attempt to fill your request. Those who apply early have the best selection of accommodations.
