New England Weavers' Seminar:  2023 Housing & Meals

On Campus Housing

Worcester State University offers comfortable on-campus housing in air-conditioned suites.  The bedrooms have standard height beds, a dresser, a closet, a desk, and a chair.  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. 

Because the housing is arranged in suites, you can enter the names of your requested suitemates when registering.  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.  Please indicate this in the "Requested Suitemate" field.

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.

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.  You will receive a parking permit by email before arriving.

If you choose off-campus housing, you are responsible for making your own reservations.  T


Meals will be served cafeteria-style.


Vegetarian choices will be available at every meal. You may purchase a meal plan for each of the days desired.  


Dining hall meal plans must be purchased by 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 16, 2023.  On-site purchases are available with a credit or debit card, but cash is not accepted.


The meal plan is open to every registrant, whether or not you are staying in on-campus housing.
