HERS Denver Summer Institute
Travel & Logistical Information
Participants will reside in Nagel Hall on the University of Denver Campus. Breakfast is available each morning in the Nelson Hall Dining Room. There are no facilities for spouses, families, guests or pets. You will have a single room (within a shared suite) in Nagel Hall. Your room assignment will be listed underneath your name on the preliminary participant list and posted online. Since you are familiar with academic institutions, you probably know something about college residence halls – by no stretch of the imagination do they offer hotel amenities. Your residence hall room will include a bed, desk, chair, microwave, refrigerator, bookshelf, closet, two flat sheets, blanket, towel, pillow, and pillow case. We will provide hangers, hand soap, and plastic cups.
Previous participants have suggested that you may want to bring your own personal touches such as a mattress pad for a twin sized bed, light summer bedspread, an alarm clock or radio, a reading pillow, pictures, a larger towel or an extra reading lamp. Please remember to bring your own toiletries, including shampoo and conditioner, as well as any medications. It is recommended that you bring money for the laundry machines and appropriate clothing as the Denver temperatures can vary and some have found the air conditioning in the dorms to be a bit cool. Because we are cutting down on bottle and paper use as our part in DU’s sustainability effort, we ask that you bring a water bottle or coffee mug for use during the institute.
Participants will have breakfast in the dining hall daily in Nelson Hall (building next to Nagel Hall on campus) and meals during sessions (lunch and dinners) will be in the buildings where the sessions are located. With advance notice, we are able to accommodate special meal requests (allergies, gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, lactose free, etc.).
In general, dress is very informal (shorts, jeans, t-shirts, etc) and we encourage you to be as comfortable as you can. The opening and closing events are business casual.
You will be given an access code to use the University of Denver network during your stay.
The Coors Fitness Center on the University of Denver Campus will be open daily during your stay. For additional information about the Coors Fitness Center, please call 303-871-3845 or visit: http://www.recreation.du.edu/
Your fee includes lunches and dinners (when there is an evening program) during the HERS Denver Institute sessions. Driving and parking directions will be available for non-residential participants – there will be an extra fee to park on campus and we will help secure your parking passes for you. If you will require a parking pass, please contact Stacey Farnum (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the HERS Denver Office and she will help arrange it for you.
