Back to School

Summer Institute participants commonly report that meeting on a college campus and staying in residence halls adds immensely to the experience. We strongly encourage attendees to stay in the residence halls to get the most out of their time at the institute. That said, it is important to note that the services and amenities provided differ significantly from those normally offered by hotels. You will receive a suggested list of what to bring with you prior to your arrival.

    

Internet Access

Internet access will be available in the residence halls and meeting rooms. Laptops, tablets and smartphones are welcome on site for your personal and professional use but are not required. Attendees will receive a Wi-Fi code when they check in at the residence halls.

     

Residence Hall Accommodations

Residence hall life is an integral part of the CASE Summer Institute experience. To collaborate and network with your colleagues, CASE strongly recommends staying on campus in order to get the most of your time at the institute.

A four-night stay in the on campus residence halls is included in your conference registration. Accommodations include a private room in an air conditioned four bedroom, two bathroom suite*. Please indicate when you register if you require any accommodations due to special circumstances or medical issues.

The residence halls will NOT be available before NOON on Day 1 or after 2:00 PM on Day 5. If you plan on arriving in earlier or later, you are responsible for arranging your own accommodations.

You will receive a suggested list of what to bring with you prior to your arrival but many amenities are included, such as linens, towels, a full size refrigerator and a microwave*.
