For those planning to stay on the Fort Lewis College campus, lodging is available in West Hall, Centennial A Apartments and Mears A Apartments. West Hall is all double suite style rooms where each suite consists of two rooms with two twin beds per room.  The two rooms are connected through a shared bath. The Centennial Apartments are a mix of one and two bedroom units where each bedroom has two twin beds.  The Mears Apartments are two bedroom units where each bedroom has only one twin bed. Each unit in the Centennial Apartments and Mears Apartments has a shared bathroom, living area, and kitchen with stove, oven, and refrigerator.  No cooking and eating utensils are provided so guests will need to bring their own.  All beds on campus are twin size. Double beds are not available.

The apartments are $60/apartment/night for a two-bed unit and $88/apartment/night for a four-bed unit. The suites in West Hall are $46/room/night or $92/suite/night.  Sales and lodging tax of 7.9% will also be assessed on all reservations. There is also a one-time set up fee of $10/person for participants staying in campus lodging.

A credit card number is required to reserve lodging. Due to concerns about computer hacking, the College has created a new security system and procedures for all credit card purchases across campus.  Since the College can no longer store credit cards on their server as they have done in the past, participants will be charged the full amount for lodging, meal plan, and reservation fee when placing their reservation. The full amount minus the $10.00 reservation fee is refundable if cancelled 48 hours prior to arrival. This new procedure is to protect you from any potential hack into their system.   All credit card payments are being processed through a separate dedicated secure system.

Linens and towels are included. One set is provided for the entire stay. If guests choose to exchange their linens they may do so at the front desk, but there is not enough inventory to exchange more than one time during the stay. These accommodations are clean and comfortable, but they are residence halls so they are fairly basic. The rooms are not air-conditioned, so you might consider bringing a fan.
