Want to relive your dorm experience? Stay on campus with your fellow classmates and be close to all of the weekend activities. Please note that rooms are booked on a first come, first served basis and are subject to availability. If you prefer to stay off campus, a list of nearby St. Paul hotels is listed below with special rates for the weekend. Additional lodging options are also available near the airport and the Mall of America, as well as online at Airbnb and Homeaway.
On Campus Housing
Rooms are available from 1:00pm Thursday through noon on Sunday. Linens, blankets, and towels are provided, but not air-conditioning or fans. Restrooms are shared. We do our best to accommodate requests, but please remember, it’s a dorm room and not a hotel, so plan accordingly. If you plan to share your room with another classmate, please contact them in advance to confirm their attendance. You will receive your key and room assignment upon check-in.
