Where to Stay

There are a few lodging options close to the University. The Days Hotel is a fifteen-minute walk and offers rooms for about $70 per night. But be sure to ask for the University discount or you'll pay ninety. The Commons Hotel is about one block from the IRM and offers more upscale accommodations at around $100/night. Wales House is a ten-bedroom house that has been used as an "inn" for the last thirteen years. It is steps from the University and offers rooms for $60/night (shared bath) to $70/night (private bath). Wales House tends to book quickly, so if you are interested in this one make your reservation in advance. The recently-renovated University Inn is about a 25 minute walk, and all rooms come with kitchenettes (about $75/night). The Historic Faculty House housed the Delta Delta Delta sorority for nearly a century and now operates as a bed-and-breakfast type inn. It is about a 15-20 minute walk from the IRM, and rooms are $55 - $85/night for stays of 1 week or more. Dorm rooms are also available during the summer (June 1 - Aug 22) in the 17th Avenue residence hall. Rates are $57.00 (tax included) per night for a single room and $43.00 (tax included) per night per person for a double-occupancy room. You may be able to find some other options on the University's housing website.

Rates subject to change, so check directly with the hotel or rooming house.
