New England Weavers' Seminar: 2023 Housing & Meals
On Campus Housing
Worcester State University offers comfortable on-campus housing in air-conditioned, three or four bedroom suites or individual rooms arranged in pairs with a common three-part bath (separate toilet room, shower room, and double sink area). Linens (pillow, sheets, blanket, and fresh towels) will be provided. All rooms are accessible by elevator. Please let us know if you have specific needs for wheelchair access or service animal accommodations. Housing is $45 per night.
Because the housing is arranged in suites or pairs, you will be contacted after registering to ask if you have preferred suitemates. The Housing Coordinator will make every effort to meet your request.
Dorm accommodations will be available beginning Tuesday evening for volunteers working on Wednesday. Those who need to be on campus Thursday morning for the Beginning Weaving class, the tour, or volunteer activities can use the dorms beginning Wednesday evening. Volunteers arriving early should contact the Webmaster/Registrar for a discount housing code.
There are a limited number of dorm rooms available for the conference. If you plan on staying in the dorm, please reserve early to guarantee your spot.
Although most attendees are women, housing for men or couples is available. This information will be requested in an email after you register.
Internet access will be available in every room.
On-campus housing must be reserved by 5:00 pm on Friday, June 16, 2023. You will not be able to obtain a room at the on-site registration desk.
Attendees who anticipate needing accommodations due to a
disability, or who have questions about access should notify us in advance so that we may work with WSU Student Accessibility Services to accomodate you.
Off Campus Housing
The city of Worcester has a number of hotel options, but none are within walking distance of the campus.
Parking is available near the campus buildings. No permit is required to use the campus parking lots or parking garage.
If you choose off-campus housing, you are responsible for making your own reservations.
