Frequently Asked Questions

What time should I arrive/depart?

How do you select roommates?

Accommodations are double-occupancy rooms. We make every effort to place you with the roommate you selected with your registration information. If you do not select a roommate, we try to pair you with another teacher with a similar number of years teaching and from your geographical region, as well as your gender. If you are attending with a group from the same area, we may try to contact your coordinator to confirm rooming lists. Please note that non-married roommates must be of the same gender.
