Santa Fe Accommodations
The college offers limited housing in suites on campus. Accommodations are simple, yet comfortable, with five separate single-occupancy bedrooms arranged around a shared living room, and a double bathroom. Housing is located about a five-minute walk uphill from the classrooms and dining area. Due to the cool summer evenings, air conditioning is usually not needed in Santa Fe; therefore our accommodations are not fitted with air conditioners. An ethernet port is provided in every room as well as is a telephone for local or calling card calls. Wireless service is available in most areas throughout campus. Cell phone service can be spotty in some areas of campus, and some service provider’s coverage is better than others.
Room and board fees include accommodations, linens, and meals from Sunday evening through breakfast on Saturday. A linen exchange is offered to individuals staying more than one week. All rooms are single occupancy. Suite housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If suite housing is no longer available, the college will be happy to place you on a wait list, or simpler dorm space may be available.
Room and board fees are $510 per week per person. Payment for housing is due at the time of registration.
Should you have any special needs while staying on campus, please inform the Summer Classics office at the time of registration.
Due to limited space on campus we cannot accommodate early arrivals or late departures. You may check into your room at the time of registration on Sunday; keys will be available at registration. Checkout is by 10 a.m. on Saturday. We suggest you make travel arrangements to accommodate this schedule.
