Housing Information

Participants' housing will be at University Heights. Participants will be notified of their suitemates by NCAN Administration, not UH directly. Please visit the FAQ page of the UH website to familiarize yourself with the items you will need to bring. We will have a welcome package for each suite consisting of: reusable plastic cultery, plates, cups, and bowls; napkins; plastic wrap; spray cleaner; sponges; paper towels; dishcloths; toilet paper; garbage bags; shower curtains; dish soap; bar soap; laundry soap; dryer sheets and plastic hangers. All other items you may need must be brought in. We suggest that you coordinate with your roommates to bring common items (e.g. kitchen and cooking supplies). Finally, past participants have commented that the beds are quite hard, so if you prefer a softer sleeping experience, we suggest bringing a foam mattress topper.

Move-in day can begin as early as Saturday, July 8th (UH Security will have room keys).

The latest move-out day will be Sunday, July 30th.

    Meal Allowance

    Each student will receive a $750 meal allowance in the form of three $250 checks to be issued on each Monday of the Course. In an effort to make lunch time easy, we will have sign-ups for on-site lunch during the first and third week of the Course. Students can enjoy a delivered lunch while mingling with faculty and other students at the meeting venue. Prices and selections will vary depending no vendor. We will also hold small dinners at local restaurants with faculty and 3-4 students to promote further interaction. Participation in Course-organized lunches and dinners is optional.
