Accommodations during Summer and Symposiums
Our Conference Housing program provides comfortable residence hall rooms in a campus environment for academic-related groups and individuals. If your group is seeking summer guest accommodations at Prescott College between the dates of May 15 and August 1, or during the symposiums, we would be happy to discuss our offerings with you and assist with other on-campus arrangements.

The desk is open in the evening to assist conference guests when there are guests staying on campus. Daily desk hours are from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., 928-350-1017.

Residence Hall Rooms
Several residence halls are used for conference housing and they are all located in close proximity to university dining facilities and meeting space. Rooms in the residence halls include a bed, desk, and wardrobe or closet for each participant. Gender specific restrooms and housing assignments are available. Housing options can range from townhome settings to private, single cottages. All buildings are centrally located on campus and are within walking distance to anywhere on campus and local grocery stores. During the academic year, these spaces house our students.

Policies and Procedures
A no-smoking policy in all residence halls is instated during the summer conference housing season. In addition, no overnight guests are allowed in the residence halls. All pets are forbidden in the residence halls as well, except for seeing-eye dogs. Although Prescott College prohibits alcohol on campus, event specific arrangements for alcohol allowance can be made at the time of registration. Please do not bring alcohol into the housing area without the written consent of the Residence Housing Manager.
1. Housing facilities are turned around very quickly between groups therefore check-in and check-out for each group/person is limited to a one to two-hour time block.
2. Special arrangements may be made through the Auxiliary Services Office if needed. Most check-in/outs are held in the lobby of the Office of Residence Life.
When a group checks out, any linen should be placed in the pillow case and dropped off at the Residence Life Office. All trash should be removed from the room and placed in the appropriate dumpster receptacle.

Each group agrees to provide Prescott College with a complete list of all participants two weeks prior to check-in. The group will be responsible to pay for this number of attendees (the guarantee) for housing as a minimum, even if subsequent changes reduce the number of attendees and/or room nights requested.

Each group must promptly provide the University with any additions, deletions, or other changes to the participant list. Changed or late additions are subject to a $5.00/person fee.
Prescott College does not guarantee availability of housing accommodation or meeting facilities in excess of 105% of the guaranteed numbers. If a final declaration of numbers is not given to Prescott College two weeks prior to the date of the check-in/registration time, Prescott College will assume attendance to be those estimated numbers listed under the housing section of the contract, for use of on campus housing and each group will be responsible to pay for the guaranteed number for the number of nights reserved.
