Adult Friends may choose to register for half of the Gathering and choose on-campus housing, or they may commute. There are two half-Gathering options:
- arrive Sunday June 30 and depart Wedensday July 3 OR
- arrive Wednesday July 3 and depart Saturday July 6
Friends choosing the first half may arrive early (extra fees apply).
Half-Gathering meal plans include Sunday dinner thorugh Wednesday lunch OR Wednesday lunch through Saturday breakfast. The meal plans which feature "cooperatively cooked dinner" are not available to half-Gathering registrants.
Housing: Singles and doubles (shared rooms) are both available. However, because of the small number of people registered for half a Gathering, if you sign up for a double room and we are unable to find you a roommate, we will change your housing to a single and change your price accordingly. Doubles are only guaranteed for those who register with a rommmate for the same half-Gathering. Cluster preferences will be accommodated on a space available basis after housing full-time registrants. We will not house a half-Gathering registrant with a full-Gathering registrant.
Workshops: Choose a workshop open to half-Gathering or part-time registrants.
Shuttles: There is Wednesday transportation to and from the airport, but not to and from the train station.
Friends may choose to make their own off-site housing arrangements for the Gathering. All of these Friends are considered commuters, whether they are camping, staying at a hotel, or commuting from home. They may register for the full Gathering, for a half-Gathering, or as part-time registrants on a per day basis.
Commuters' "housing" fee: Commuters who register for the full or half-Gathering must choose the "Commuter" housing plan (housing fees include University fees which is why there is a housing charge for commuters).
Commuters' meal-plan options: Commuters who register for the full or half-Gathering may choose a meal plan, or choose "no meal plan." The "prepare your own food" meal plan is only available for Friends residing on campus. The cooperative cooking options are available to full-time commuters/campers, but not to half-Gathering registrants.
Part-time registrants choose to regiser for one to five days of the Gathering. Some part-time registrants may prefer the half-Gathering option. The $90 per day part-time registration fee does ot include on-site housing nor meals. Meals are available in the UNC cafeteria on a cash basis.They may register in advance for one of the workshops open to part-time registrants.
