Housing at DUjust like a hotel! And a few
real hotel suggestions.
Most people think of dormitory life on a college
campus and cringedark rooms, scary floors, bathrooms down
the hall... . Quite the contrary in the newest of residence halls
on the DU campus.
Nelson Residence Hall (#36 on your maps) opened
Fall 2002. A current resident said, its just like
living in a hotel, we even have key cards!
The dormitory, as mentioned in the January GNSI
newsletter, has many pluses! The first floor houses the food
court where many of you will eat your meals. The building
is within close proximity of Sturm Hall (#12) where the majority
of presentations and workshops will be held.
Each room and each floor is set up a little differently.
Most rooms are arranged as suites2 doubles or a double and
2 singles sharing a common area and bathroom. Sheets and towels
are supplied by DU. All rooms are carpeted. Each has a microwave/fridge
combo, internet hookup and a telephone jack (no telephone). All
rooms include desks, desk lights, and an overhead light. A common
kitchen can be found on each floor (bring pans if you plan on
doing heavy duty cooking!) whereas the laundry is on the first
level. Two elevators and stairwells per floor move residents effectively
through the thin air of Colorado.
If you choose to stay off-campus the following accommodations
are within a five mile radius of the campus. Please check for
