Short-Stay Groups Private Units

Private units are a single occupancy option that provide staff or adult chaperones the most privacy because guests have their own room. These are the units that are used during the academic year by our in hall student and professional staff members. Bathroom facilities in most locations offer private in-suite bathrooms while some private units have bathrooms that adjoin with another private unit from the same group and by a participant of the same gender.
