Conferences & Training
Lodging and Travel - Summer Institute in Educational Fundraising

The institute will be held at:
Dartmouth College
Hanover, NH 03755

Dartmouth College is a private, four-year liberal arts institution that has been at the forefront of American higher education since 1769. A member of the Ivy League, Dartmouth is a superb undergraduate residential college with the intellectual character of a university, featuring thriving research and first-rate graduate and professional programs.


As part of your registration fee, you will receive a four-night stay in the Dartmouth Residence Halls. Each attendee will stay in a private room with air conditioning and share a semi-private bathroom and shower facilities. Some showers in the newer residence halls are located in the hallways. Rooms have daily maid service and towels and linens are provided. An ice machine is located in the dormitory kitchen area.

Rooms will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date CASE receives registrations. Be sure to let CASE know in advance if you require any special accommodations due to physical limitations.

Due to liability limitations, guests not affiliated with the institute are not permitted to stay in the residence halls. If you must bring additional guests with you, it is recommended that you stay off site (see list of nearby hotels below). Please notify CASE staff in advance if you do not plan on staying in the residence halls.

If you choose to stay off campus, CASE will deduct $200 off your registration fee. If registering online, enter code OFFSITE in the "Promo Code" field of the final checkout page to receive this discount.

Residence hall life is very different than hotel life.

Though linens and towels are provided, many amenities are not (refer to the What to Bring section for a comprehensive list of items you may want to bring with you to Dartmouth.)

Traveling to Hanover

There are four major airports serving the region: Boston, Mass. (Logan International); Burlington, Vt.; Hartford, Conn.; and Manchester, N.H.

Travel by Bus
CASE arranges for roundtrip bus service between either Boston's Logan Airport or Manchester Airport and Dartmouth College. On Sunday, July 22, one bus leaves from Logan Airport's International Terminal (Terminal E) at 11:00 AM, and the other bus leaves from Manchester Airport at 11:30 AM.

Note: So that attendees arrive in time for the opening session, we will leave promptly at these times and will not be able to delay for late arrivals; please schedule your flights accordingly.

The buses will take riders directly to the institute registration area where a box lunch will be provided to bus riders. For the return trip to Logan or Manchester, all buses leave Dartmouth at 1:00 PM on Thursday, July 26 (please schedule your flights accordingly, as the bus ride takes 1½ hours to Manchester, and 2½ hours to Boston). These are the only CASE buses, if you need to arrive earlier or later, please see Alternate Bus Service below.

Roundtrip bus fare is $180; one-way fare is $90. All fares must be prepaid. Please place your reservation (on the registration form) as soon as possible to ensure your seat. 

Bus riders will receive more details closer to the institute's start-date.
