Lodging at SPI
Participant accommodations on campus are in air-conditioned apartments at the Hillside Suites dormitory. Each apartment has 2 to 4 bedrooms adjoining a common living room, bathroom and kitchen. There are individual phones but no TVs in the apartments. Participants will be assigned to an apartment with other SPI participants of your gender. The participant can request a single bedroom (one twin bed) or a double bedroom (two twin beds, two participants in each room). A single room costs more per night than a double room. Please note the bedroom request on the online Reservation form.
SPI contracts with EMU Auxiliary Services on campus to provide each bed with a pillow, blanket and a linen set. An EMU linen set consists of two single size flat sheets, one pillowcase, two towels and two washcloths. Please note that fitted sheets are not provided. We encourage participants to bring their own if they can. Each Wednesday morning before classes, you can exchange your used EMU linens for fresh ones.
The kitchen in each suite/apartment has a stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Dishes, basic cookware and eating utensils are also provided. You are welcome to bring your own favorite kitchen tools.
