Quality service begins and ends with every member of conference housing, working together to satisfy our guests. We will continually improve our service quality by understanding our guests’ needs, by structuring our work to fulfill those needs, and by striving to do the job right the first time, every time.

Our accommodations are designed to be conducive to both work and relaxation. All of our residence halls are safe, comfortable, attractive, well maintained, and reasonably priced. We include a television lounge on each floor, telephones in each room, and a laundry facility in every building.
