Housing and meals
Double occupancy housing in townhouse apartments at a rate of ~$60/night.
Participants will typically book housing for 13 nights (arrive Sunday, the day before the first day of the course; depart Saturday, the day following the last day of the course), thus the total charge is about $800.
Single rooms are available for an additional $30/night, thus at a rate of $90/night.
Meal cards are available for purchase, providing access to dining halls near the townhouse apartments, at a rate of about ~$40/day. Participants will typically buy a meal card for the duration of the institute, thus 13 days for a total of about $520.
If you are accepted to the Institute, further registration information will be forthcoming and you will be provided with links to complete an online reservation for housing at that time.
