Room Information

Apartment Rates with three to an apartment: $275/person for 15 nights (includes linen, cleaning fee, buzzcard, and campus access fee). This translates into a daily cost of $18.33/night/person. (These are 2013 prices, and there is a 8.5% tax added to this cost, making the total $ 298.40.)

  • Linen includes 2 sheets, pillow, pillowcase, blanket, bath towel and washcloth.
  • All beds come with a mattress pad.
  • Each of the two bedrooms in the apartments has 1-2 beds (oversized twin beds), mattress pads, a closet, and a desk.
  • Apartments also have a bathroom, kitchenette and living room areas. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator and stove, but essentially no pots and pans, dishes or utensils. There are a limited number of pots that can be borrowed on a first come, first serve basis. 
  • Meals may be purchased as needed in the new Student Union dining facilities.
  • Each apartment has phone service but not the phone equipment. Guests are encouraged to bring a phone. Local calls are free. Long-Distance calls can be made via a LD phone card. Additionally, each room has a designated phone number; hence incoming calls can be made directly to a room.
  • Apartments are air conditioned.
  • All apartments are not wheel chair accessible. Those requiring ground floor accommodations should indicate it on the attached form.

Each guest will receive a buzzcard. The buzzcard is used to gain access to the Residence Hall and identify the guest as a member of the Johanna Meier Opera Theatre Institute.
