How to register
If you are staying off-campus, choose “Commuter” when registering for the Gathering. Registration opens in early April.
The College Inn
FGC has a hold on 30 rooms at The College Inn, a few blocks from the Western Oregon University, from July 2-8.
The motel is a two story structure without elevators. Rooms are air-conditioned. They have ONE handicapped accessible room, at @110/night. The rate, including tax, for a single queen room is just over $100/night, including taxes. There are also King rooms and Queen/Queen rooms. Discounts may be available for seniors, AAA members, and others.
From all appearances the motel is dated but clean. They do no provide breakfast, and there is no pool. They do accept pets but there is a fee of $20/per night, per pet.
Friends can begin booking rooms immediately. Reservations should be made before May, as rooms will be likely be released at that point. To book, call 503-838-4445, say you are attending the FGC Gathering, and secure a reservation with a credit card.
