Participants are invited to stay in the university’s residence halls where they will be housed in doubles or singles in a wing of Tamarak Hall.
Tamarak is the tallest building in Beltrami County, with a beautiful view of Lake Bemidji and the Bemidji area. Social and study lounges are located on the twelfth floor and are often the site of impromptu participant gatherings for informal readings, workshops, and conversations that carry on into the night.
Suites are also available in Linden Hall.
Families, including children, are also heartily welcome to stay at BSU. Participants may extend their stay in the residence halls beyond the conference dates. While here, family members are encouraged to enjoy the abundant recreational opportunities offered by BSU’s Outdoor Program Center and the surrounding Bemidji area.
The rate is $15.00 per night for a single. Contact us for family rates.
