Where to Stay:
The on-campus apartments offer a closer and more affordable living experience. Those who stay on-campus are just a short walk to classes in University Hall and will experience continued camaraderie shared throughout each day’s activities. Even after Institute classes and planned activities have ended, those in the dorms will have the opportunity to further network and establish bonds with their peers in an informal environment.
Each apartment has a kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Please note that apartments do not come with basic hotel amenities, such as a TV, microwave, alarm clock, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, silverware, etc. Linen can be purchased for a one-time fee of $22.00 or you can provide your own (XL-twin bed).
“I strongly encourage attendees to consider staying on campus during their stay in Los Angeles. You can sleep in a bit later and don’t have to rely on the bus to take you to campus. The dorm area overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the bluffs, allowing you to enjoy a stunning view of L.A.’s Westside – from Santa Monica to Hollywood. The rooms are clean, large, and bright, and each comes with a full size kitchen and standard refrigerator, waiting to be stocked with your favorite food and drinks! Lastly, there’s the opportunity to relax, socialize, and make lasting memories with your fellow Institute attendees. You just can’t beat it!”
