Dorm Room Lodging

Exterior of Frontier with bicycles parked out front.

We are way past the dorm’s stated final reservation date.  You can attempt to check in at the dorm without a reservation and see if they will place you but no guarantees this close to conference time.  If you do get into a room at the last minute, you will need to see Esther Horn at the registration desk to pay the rental rate plus a late fee of $25.

Room Rates: Double $41.48/night per person; Single $55.13/night per person


Parking is available on campus for $11.00 per day in a parking garage/ramp for a full day rate with unlimited entry and exit.

Campus is also within blocks of the light rail stop and bus stops. There are three Green Line light rail stops on campus (West Bank, East Bank, Stadium Village). The Green Line connects to the Blue Line, which goes directly to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport.
