Housing & Meals
The Workshop strongly recommends living on campus, since this will augment the overall experience and increase the opportunity to speak with instructors, visitors, and other students.
Living on-campus is not required unless specified by student funding.
On-campus housing will be in single rooms with shared bath in Willkie Residence Center. Residential Program Services (RPS) will not permit students who will not be 18 by the start of the Workshop to live in Willkie. Other on-campus housing may be arranged for students who are 17.

The special Workshop rate for Willkie in 2015 is $29.55 per night; the 2016 housing rates have not yet been finalized, but should be comparable. The following is an estimate of housing costs for the duration of the Workshop:
