West Campus. Except for the High School program (Harrison Hall), west campus dorms are air conditioned suites (South Hall--listed on the map as "New West Campus Residence Hall-South--, Lawrenson Hall, and Turner Hall). All dorms are have elevators and accessible entrances. ADA rooms are in South Hall. Suites have many different configurations rincluding one bed, five singles, and one double plus two singles, and two doubles. No suite has more than five beds. Suites with one to four beds have one toilet and one shower, with sinks outside of the bathrooms. Suites with five beds have two toilets and two showers, with sinks outside of the bathrooms.
Central Campus. The AYF program will be housed in an air conditioned dorm on Central Campus, very close to the University Center.. Doubles (shared rooms) and singles are both available. Bathrooms are shared on the hallway, in "traditional" dorm format.
See a campus map.
Linens: Sheets, pillowcase, towel, wash cloth, light blanket, mattress pad, and pillow are provided for each bed. No linens are provided for children on the floor.
More dorm notes: There are scattered refrigerators in the dorms that will be shared with other Friends and, in some cases, with Junior Gathering. There may not be a refrigerator on your floor. There is free wireless in the main lounges of all dorms and all the non-dorm buildings used byt the Gathering. The University can quickly activate the ethernet connection in a dorm room for $5 (bring your own ethernet cord).
High Schoolers are all housed in the High School dorm. Most families choose General Housing (everyone is automatically assigned to General Housing unless they choose a cluster or choose "prepare your food"). These families are housed together according to the age of their youngest child (unless one child is a rising 7th, 8th or 9th grader in which case the family is housed with other families with 7th, 8th or 9th grade children). Families may choose to the Prepare-Your-Food meal plan option, the FLGBTQC cluster, or young adults with children 5 years or younger may choose the AYF cluster. In each of these cases, families are less likely to be housed near similarly aged children.
Because of the set up of suites on this campus, making decisions about what kind of housing to request can get complicated. Please read Family Housing Details and Examples prior to registering for the Gathering.
Children up to 12 years or younger may sleep on the floor once beds are filled. Children sleeping on the floor must bring a bedroll, pillow, and towel. If a single parent chooses a double room with one child on the floor, we will make every effort to find them parent-and-child roommates. If we are unable to do so, the parent must pay for a bed for the child.
All dorms have roll-in entrances and elevators. Please indicate your mobility limitations in the Access portion of the registration form. If you have other specific housing needs, please be specific when you complete your registration. ADA rooms are available. If you have concerns about how your needs will be met, please contact the FGC office.
