Lodging

Participants will stay in the WVU Honors Hall, which is easy walking distance to the Downtown Library where all workshop sessions, including breakfast and lunch, will be held. The residence hall offers single-occupancy rooms with suite-style bathrooms. KairosCamp offers a shuttle service for those with limited mobility. Contact Cheryl for more details.

We received special permission to use the residence hall for this workshop, but that means we must vacate by noon on Friday, August 4. We have arranged (and paid for) for anyone flying out on Saturday to stay in the local, historic Hotel Morgan in downtown Morgantown. The shuttle driver will pick you up at the hotel Saturday morning to take you to the Pittsburgh airport. We will notify you of those times later on.

Remember you’re staying in a residence hall. It is nice, and fairly new (built in 2007), but please read the information below carefully so you know what to expect and can plan accordingly.

What is provided/what you must bring:

  • Linens: They may not be up to your standards. (There’s a reason we call it “Camp!”) You may want to bring shower shoes, a small robe, a larger towel, and a washcloth.
  • Laundry: You can buy $4 cards at the Main Desk. You must provide your own detergent.
  • Microwave: one is available on every floor.
  • Refrigerator: One is available in the break room near the entrance. The break room is always open, but you will need to label your food.
  • There is no kitchen access, so all the food you bring must be ready to eat or microwavable.
  • Extras you might want to bring if you have space: your own pillow, small lamp, small coffee pot/kettle, and an extra blanket.

A few other things to consider:

  • Morgantown is built into the mountains, and parts of it are fairly hilly so good walking shoes are highly recommended. KairosCamp also offers a shuttle service for those with limited mobility. Contact Cheryl for more details.
  • Morgantown is also a rain-forest climate. It can rain unexpectedly and be hot and humid or very cool at night, so bring layers.
  • We will make a grocery store run the first evening. There is no kitchen access, so all the food you purchase must be ready to eat or microwavable.
  •  If you need coffee really early before our morning session begins, there is a large Sheetz convenience store a block from the dorms. Otherwise, go to The Grind coffee shop in town next to the library (M-F, 7:00 am; weekends, 8:00 am).
