Get ready to revisit your undergrad days as you reconnect with dorm-style living! Participants have the option of living at Brown College, where they will have their own rooms, but will share a bathroom with one other attendee. Located on Grounds at UVA, the convenience of Brown College is unparalleled although be advised that it is spartan dormitory accommodation close to libraries, seminar rooms and The Lawn, Brown provides air-conditioned rooms, in addition to a study lounge, kitchen, computer lab, library, laundry facilities, and two TV lounges. All rooms are accessed by stairs, so if you require full accessibility, please let us know ASAP. One participant will be assigned to each suite (i.e. suites will not be shared – see plans below)
*COST per teacher is $42 per night (for a total of $504) and will be subtracted from the first half of your stipend payment. There will be an additional cost of $15 per week for the rental of a microwave/minifridge unit which will also be subtracted from your stipend payment.
*LINENS: Participants will need to bring XL twin-sized linens, a blanket and towels. These may be shipped to The Center for the Liberal Arts ahead of time.
Participants can rent linens from the University of Virginia for a $20 per person fee. With this arrangement, each guest will receive a shrink-wrapped linen package which will include the following: a bed pillow, pillow case, two sheets, a bedspread, two bath towels, a washcloth, and a bath mat.
Parking will be available for those choosing to stay at Brown College. The cost of the pass has not been finalized but should be about $24 for two weeks. The parking lot will be about a 15 minute walk from Brown College.
Participants will have the option of pre-ordering box lunches for certain days during the Institute. They may also choose to pack their own lunch. If they choose the box lunch option the cost for the lunches will be deducted from seminar stipends with teachers’ approval. Teachers will be able to make choices about lunch options; a vegetarian option will always be provided. These arrangements will be made closer to the beginning of the institute.
Participants staying in Brown College will also have the option of buying a meal plan, details will be forthcoming.
