All conference participants are expected to adhere to the Stony Brook University Terms of Occupancy and Code of Student Responsibility. Failure to do so can result in removal from Conference Housing without a refund.
Adult Housing: Suite style, air-conditioned rooms housing 4-6 individuals in double or single occupancy bedrooms based on location. Suites include a bathroom in the unit. Linens are included in the rate. For the 2023 season, we do not have Chávez and Tubman available, so our single room option will be in West Apartments.

H and Mendelsohn buildings do not have air conditioning and Roth buildings do have air conditioning. Linens are included in the rate. The group must have chaperones who are at least 18 years old and two years older than the general participants' age. Chaperones are responsible for addressing participants' needs, engagements, and concerns. Group coordinators must ensure that all SUNY and SBU policies regarding child safety are managed.
