Participants are housed in dormitory rooms. Rooms are furnished with one or two single beds and can accommodate one or two paid participants. Fans, sheets, pillowcases, blankets, towels, washcloths and soap are provided by Vermont Academy. Wireless internet is available in all buildings on campus. Please note; individual dormitory rooms are not air conditioned. Each floor has one or two communal bathrooms (gender specific) and a common area with a television and telephone.
If you request a single or double occupancy room, the registration fee covers 5 nights of lodging (Sunday through Thursday night, checkout Friday morning).
If you plan to arrive early or stay beyond the official conference dates, you must make your own lodging arrangements for the extra nights at an off-site property. Please refer to the “Lodging & Locations” link on our website for nearby lodging options in the Saxtons River area. You are responsible to make and pay for these additional arrangements.
You will be given your housing assignment when you arrive at the Academy. There are a limited number of single rooms which are assigned based on availability and are on a first come, first serve basis.
It may be helpful to bring a flashlight, alarm clock, or umbrella
since these items are not provided on site.
Guest & Child Policy
FASEB supports a safe and comfortable environment for conference attendees, guests and family members. On-site lodging options for conference attendees vary between the different sites. Most of our locations have lodging options in hotel rooms or condos with one or two beds; one location has lodging in school dormitories. When considering the option to bring a family member, especially children under the age of 12, please consider the location and the facilities available.
Due to the dormitory setting, conference participants bringing children under the age of 12 to the Vermont Academy will not be housed within the Vermont Academy. We encouraged those bringing children to register using the “Off-Site” option. This option includes registration and meals for the attending conference participant; lodging expenses are not included and are the responsibility of the attendee.
Information on other lodging options, please visit the “Locations & Lodging” link on our website.
For those who choose to register as an “Off Site” participant (registration and meals only), it is your responsibility to make and pay for your own lodging.
Below is a list of off-site accommodations.
