Double occupancy is usually assigned although a limited number of single rooms may be available. Registrations for housing must be sent in by June 30.
** REGISTRATION REGULATIONS **
Xavier University has made changes for the use of their entire facility including residence housing for summer conferences. Two weeks before the beginning of the Bible Institute, we must give a guaranteed number of residents and the duration of their stay. We are then responsible for the cost of the entire time reserved. Because of the new restrictions, we must require a $100.00 non-refundable deposit for each person registering for housing. (A few scholarships for the $100 fee are available.) Assigning housing is a rigorous chore with a myriad of details to be put into place. Therefore, in order to give an accurate count of who will be staying in the dormitory housing and the dates of their stay, we need this information by the June 30th deadline. If you wish to use the Xavier Housing facility, you need to make your plans early and send in your registration with the required deposit. (There are hotels and motels nearby, such as, the Quality Inn and Comfort Inn & Suites.)
Check In Options
Check in at the Registration Desk in Buenger Hall on Friday, July 20th and Sunday, July 22nd to get room assignments, keys, etc. Registration desk for housing will be in Hailstone Hall all other days. Please note: Hailstone Hall was previously known as Williams Business or CBA Building. A map of the campus will be sent with the acknowledgement of your registration. Other options for housing include nearby hotels, motels, and other off-site locations.
This year the only meal offered in the Dining Room will be lunch. Beginning on Saturday, July 21 through Saturday, July 28, you may order lunch on the Registration Form. Lunch will be $7.75 and will be served in the new building, Bishop Fenwick Place. All meals must be ordered and paid in advance by June 30. Swipe cards will be used for meals and only pre-ordered meals will be available. Checkmark appropriate areas on the Registration Form. Make checks for meals payable to Mary Handermann and mail with your Registration Form to 5442 Boutique Ct., Cincinnati, OH 45238.
DO NOT WRITE MEAL CHECKS TO PRESENTATION MINISTRIES. Meal refunds will not be made after June 30. You will be able to pick up your swipe cards for meals upon arrival.
Other possibilities for meals are a campus food court, restaurants on nearby Montgomery Road, or a take-out delivery option. The campus food court has a Blue Gibbon (Chinese), Ryan's Pub, Subway's, and Coffee Emporium with limited hours during the summer.
