Housing and Accommodations

The Institute offers several housing options. For those who wish to stay on campus, the university maintains apartment-style student housing, the Village Apartments, available for $45 per night. An apartment unit houses four people with four private/locking bedrooms, two bathrooms, a compact kitchen with standard refrigerator and common living space. Keep in mind this is student housing, so the units are not the luxurious accommodations one would find in a hotel. They are not furnished with TV’s, coffee makers, hair dryers, microwaves, dishes, cups, utensils, pots and pans, etc.   There is neither maid service nor linen exchange; the Student Village Apartments do have full-sized washers and dryers (you will need to bring your own detergent). There is free wifi service.

Facilities Services will ensure that the rooms are deeply cleaned and highly functional before participants arrive. Since the Institute comes on the heels of the end of spring semester, however, some of the walls might have scrapes and some items might have minor issues (e.g a squeaky ventilating fan). Any facility issues can be addressed, during your stay on campus, by contacting the Conference Assistant On-Call, who will submit a work-order request. We will provide this contact number upon arrival.

A second option is the Residence Inn at 525 S. Jefferson Ave., which is located 1.5 miles from the university and on public transportation lines. We have negotiated a rate of $107 per night per participant plus applicable taxes Room type- Studio Suite with one queen bed, living room area with sofa sleeper, and a kitchen with full size appliances (all rooms are non-smoking). Rates include a hot complimentary breakfast every day, complimentary hospitality hour Monday through Wednesday evenings, complimentary parking, complimentary high speed internet, and complimentary shuttle service within 3 miles of the hotel between the hours of 7 am and 11 pm. Hotel Features- Indoor pool and hot tub, 24 hour fitness center, 24 hour business center, outdoor sport court, outdoor BBQ patio, and a hotel bar located in the lobby. Participants should call

314-289-7500 to make reservations and ask for the NEH Summer Institute at SLU group rate. For more information, see Marriott Residence Inn - Downtown Saint Louis.
