The University of Arkansas has a wonderful dormitory system, especially their four person suites. Each suite has four separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a commons area with chairs. You can see the layout of a suite here: http://housing.uark.edu/campus_communities/Northwest_Quad/information.php. The price per person for the week is only US$250. The university does not handle reservations directly so we are arranging rooms and suite-mates. The restrictions are that you must pay for the entire week, and that there will be three other people in the suite. Nonetheless, this is an exceptional housing option for a very reasonable price. Each suite will have four people, so you may request up to three suite-mates. We will try to honor all suite-mate requests but cannot promise to be able to do this. If no suite-mates requests are made, you should expect to have up to three suite-mates who you may not know. We will inform all individuals who reserve a room their suite assignment as well as the names of their suite-mates. Due to university requirements, we must have your reservation and payment by 25 May 2016. Cancellations must be by May 25 as well; there will be a 90% refund up to May 1.

The building (Northwest Quad B) is on the north side of the campus close to the intersection of Garland Ave and Cleveland St. Parking for the dorms is in Parking Lot 37. The parking section of the website has a description of the parking area and the process to get a parking permit. Parking in this lot is free on weekends, but you will need a parking permit for the weekdays. You will need it to keep your vehicle there Monday morning. The parking section of the website describes how you can purchase and print a parking pass. If you wish to pay and pick up a parking permit in person, there is time before we start on Monday morning to visit the Parking and Transit office. Information is available by navigating from the links in the parking information on the website. If you open the parking map, you will see Parking Lot 37 and the Northwest Quad highlighted in red polygons. Northwest Quad B is labelled (NWQB). Enter the building and check-in on the southwest side.
