Housing

Some of the most rewarding aspects of this type of workshop come outside the regular sessions and site visits. Sharing a meal, talking in lounges, or just walking across campus provide informal opportunities to meet your colleagues and discuss topics as varied as yesterday’s lecture to last night’s baseball game. To facilitate informal exchanges between workshop participants, we encourage all attendees to lodge on the Niagara University campus.

On-campus housing is in the campus apartments, located less than one-quarter mile from the main classroom building and dining hall, with ample parking. These four-person apartments (single rooms) feature full kitchens (no utensils or pots/pans) and a common space, as well as a bed, desk, closet, internet access and an overhead light. Built in 2002, they are a popular option with students during the academic year. Rates are $40 per day. Best of all, they’re air conditioned!

If you do choose to live off campus, you are within a ten-minute drive of one of America’s enduring tourist destinations and downtown Niagara Falls, where participants can select from a wide variety of housing options. The Niagara Tourism and Convention Corporation (800-338-7890) can assist with locating lodging across the price spectrum.

All participants may select to take their meals in the campus dining hall at estimated $29.00 per day. Sodexho Campus Services offers a wide variety of food choices, including vegetarian options, in its food-court-style dining hall.  For WNY commuters, there is a lunch only option at estimated $10.00 per day. Library/Internet Access

All participants will receive access to Niagara   University's library including computer, Internet, printing and photocopying access.  The library is conveniently located in-between the campus apartments and the classroom locations. 

 The Niagara River Gorge

The Niagara River Gorge is a short walk from the Niagara University campus.  Steps lead the adventerous soul down 300 feet to the swiftly moving Niagara River--downstream from the actual Niagara Falls.
