DORM LIFE

Students do have a choice whether to stay off campus or to stay as residents on the University of Puget Sound campus in a dorm.  
Our registration fees are based on the type of housing selected during registration – $225 for the standard dorm room with no linens, or you can spend $295 for the upgraded rooms with linens provided.
Resident students and faculty will be staying in the student dorms again this year. 

Don’t forget the dorm halls are CO-ED. 
Dress appropriately for your trip down the hall!

Residents will want to plan to bring their own bedding.  The dorm bed are extra long twins.  Some students bring sleeping bags, and other bring their own sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, and a wash cloth – along with shampoo and soap.  HCNW is in June, so watch the weather and plan accordingly.  An extra blanket or light jacket is always nice.  If needed, a set of linens can be rented, when you arrive, for the weekend for $30.

Every year, the University assigns which dorms we get to use for the HCNW weekend (we do not get a choice).  If you’d like to see what dorm living is like on the campus, here’s a link to the university’s dorm information: UPS DORMS
