How to Book a Conference
Updates for Summer 2021: After consulting with University administration and supporting efforts to keep our community and clients safe, we have reached the difficult decision to postpone Summer 2021 Conference Housing operations. We hope that we will be able to resume Conference Housing operations for the Summer 2022 season. More information about the Summer 2022 season will be available during the Fall of 2021 as we further explore how to safely provide a Conference Housing experience to our guests.
