Zimfest 2012 Housing Update:

The room offerings have been updated and expanded to reflect changes from the University on availability and pricing. Please see the detalls below for more information.

Major changes include:

Rooms in Wallace and LLC will be treated as suites because of the shared bathroom and lack of individual door locks. Thus, only participants from one account can register, similar to how people registered for double rooms at Zimfest 2010/2011. Participants from other accounts may register for that room using its room key, which is generated for the first person to register on a first come/first served basis.

There is a minimum occupancy for Wallace and LLC suites, listed below. This is because Zimfest will be charged for the whole suite if only one room is occupied, and attempting to use a more complicated pricing scheme would consume excessive development/testing resources, and more time.

Because the quiet dorms (Wallace & LLC) both have minimum occupancy numbers of two or more, and because Theophilus tower has so many floors, the upper floors of the tower are designated as quiet floors, with a buffer zone to separate them from lower floors. This provides a housing option for participants who wish to have a single room in a quiet dorm.

Theophilous Tower (Floors 2-5 Non-Quiet, Floors 8-10 Quiet):

  • Theophilus rooms will be offered in one configuration as a double-occupancy room without bath (separate). These rooms may be reserved by one person.
  • These rooms will work in exactly the same way as the rooms currently on the registration system.
  • Room rates:
    • 1 occupant: Single occupancy rate $27/night; $23/night with meals.
    • 2 occupants: Double occupancy rate $23/night for both occupants; $19/night with meals.
  • (Optional) Linens may be provided for an additional one-time charge of $10/person
  • The floor bathrooms on each floor are single-gender and will be clearly marked. We have designated the bathroom genders in this way:
    • Floor 2 – FEMALE
    • Floor 3 – MALE
    • Floor 4 – FEMALE
    • Floor 5 – MALE
    • Floor 6 – floor closed
    • Floor 7 – floor closed
    • Floor 8 – FEMALE
    • Floor 9 – MALE
    • Floor 10 – FEMALE
    • Floor 11 – MALE

Wallace (Quiet):

  • Wallace rooms are reserved two joined double rooms with a shared bath.
  • The rooms are reserved as a suite with a minimum of 2, and a maximum of 4 occupants.
  • Suites will be listed in the registration system in pairs (e.g. "Wallace 109/111")
  • Because we will charged for the whole suite, if only one room is occupied, we will require at least two people to register for each pair of rooms
  • Room pair rates:
    • 1 occupant: Not allowed
    • 2 occupants: Single occupancy rate $27/night for both occupants; $23/night with meals.
    • 3 or 4 occupants: Double occupancy rate $23/night for each occupant; $19/night with meals.
  • (Optional) Linens may be provided for an additional one-time charge of $10/person.
  • Sample floor plan (individual rooms and suites may be different than shown):

Living Learning Center (Quiet):

  • LLC rooms will be offered in as mulit-room suites with bath (en suite)
  • Suites will be listed in the registration system with all connecting rooms numbers (e.g. "LLC 401B/C/D/E")
  • Because we will be charged for the while suite, rooms will have a minimum occupancy of three people for suites with 3 or more rooms.
  • Suites with fewer than three rooms will have a minimum occupancy of the numbers of room (e.g., 2 for a 2-room suite, 3 for a 3-room suite)
  • Room rates:
    • Each occupant will be billed the single occupancy rate of $35/night ($31/night with meals.)
    • Some rooms with a suite are doubles. If the suite is filled to capacity, the double occupancy rate of $31/night ($27/night with meals) will be applied to all.
    • LLC rooms include linens for each occupant, which is included in the price.
