Tuition & Lodging Form

Please read the following information and then submit the Local Arrangements Form so that we can plan appropriate parking, lodging and lunch accommodations for you. Use the following link to register for the workshop accommodations on-line for the workshop you will be attending.

Lodging: A complete list of local hotels and motels can be found at http://www.visitraleigh.com/visitors/. The closest accommodation is the Doubletree (Brownstone) Hotel (~ five blocks away) where room rates are ~$180/night. This is a clean, quiet facility with a pool, fitness center and room service.

On-Campus Dorm Housing: We also reserve a block of rooms at University Towers, a modern air-conditioned private dormitory located approximately two blocks from our building on the main campus and is within walking-distance of several fast-food restaurants. This facility contains a swimming pool, lounges, a parking deck, fitness center, and cafeteria. Please note, however, this is a low-cost dormitory facility, not a luxury condo. Numerous student groups are also housed here for summer programs and it can be lively at times. Baths are shared by two adjacent rooms and can be locked off on each side. Linens are not provided. Check in Sunday afternoon or evening and check out on Friday afternoon. Parking is included in the weekly housing fee of $225 for a single room.

Commuters and those staying locally – please let us know this too in case there are last minute concerns to communicate.  There is a place on the form for you to indicate this.

Meals: Lunches are included in your tuition Monday-Thursday and will be provided in or near the workshop building. When filling out the Tuition & Lodging form, we will provide a place for you to indicate any dietary restrictions or food allergies.

If you stay at University Towers, you may also purchase an optional meal plan for breakfasts and dinners served at University Towers. Payment ($65.00/wk.) is due with the housing fee if you purchase the meal plan.

For those of you who prefer the flexibility of eating elsewhere, there are many restaurants of all types and price ranges in Raleigh, many within walking-distance of campus. Feel free to ask Patty Aune for suggestions or check out a more complete list of Raleigh restaurants at: http://www.visitraleigh.com/restaurants/all-restaurants.

Parking: Campus parking is limited and restricted. If you stay at University Towers, you will park in their private deck. We will also provide free parking for local participants and those who stay in nearby hotels or motels but you must inform us of your housing plans by filling out the appropriate form above before you arrive. If you fail to inform us of your plans, lose your parking pass, or change your mind at the last minute, you will have to use the University’s daily pay lot ($2/hour). Most street parking is limited to two hours in surrounding residential areas.

Things to do in Raleigh: If you are not familiar with Raleigh and you have energy left in the evening to get out.
