Housing Options

Marian University is providing two housing options for this summer’s Level 2 School, suite-style apartments with a shared interior restroom and one room apartments with a community restroom. Due to the differences between the two options, USATF is offering tiered pricing (see table below). Both housing options include room & board (R&B) with three meals per day. The suite-style apartments will be limited and are only available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Please note that these are college residence halls with twin size, university owned bedding. If you have trouble sleeping, prefer larger bedding or think you will be uncomfortable, we suggest staying off campus at a local hotel.
