WE will be making the housing arrangements so please be specific in your requests to share either rooms or the condos (which will include sharing rooms.) You cannot call Macleay Center and “reserve” a condo. We have them all booked and will be making the arrangements.
There are NO private bathrooms in the dorms or the condos. Each dormitory has a women’s and a men’s bathroom at opposite ends. They contain 3 stalls, 3 showers and three sinks.
The condos have one bathroom downstairs near the main bedroom with one sink, one toilet and one shower. The main downstairs bedroom has one queen bed. The upstairs lofts have 2 to 5 beds in them.
If you do not want to share a bathroom then you may wish to stay at a local motel. There are many choices within 15 minutes of the center. If enough people opt to stay in a motel, we could work on a group rate. We will let you know which hotel we have reserved a block of rooms. You would then need to register with the commuter category and will need to make your own motel/hotel reservation and pay that directly.
Most bedrooms will be shared although there are some bedrooms with one queen bed in them that we will reserve for couples (or two people willing to share) at a slightly extra charge or for a single person for a larger charge. There are also rooms with one queen and one double. Let us know if you are a couple who would share a room with one other. Your cost will be the regular registration fee.
Some of the bedrooms have a queen bed and 2 or 3 sets of bunk beds in them. We will be asking for volunteers to sleep on top bunks. Depending on the numbers and the arrangements we make, we should not have too many people sleeping on top bunks. We may have up to 7 people sharing a room if necessary.
6. If you would like to share a room with a group of friends please give us their names and have them list your name also. If you do not state a preference we will assign roommates.
The Macleay Center is very accessible. The grounds are entirely flat with no stairs in any of the public spaces . (The condos do have stairs up to a sleeping loft.) There is abundant well-lit parking not far from the dorms. The dorms each have a kitchen with refrigerators and all the condos have a kitchen with a refrigerator. You are allowed to consume alcoholic beverages in your dorm or condo and in the gym during the socials. Please do not carry open containers in the public areas. There will be two designated outdoor smoking areas.
