Are you interested in hosting your summer conference at WKU? Our residence halls are a great space for your summer conference guests.

We welcome educational, professional, or religious organizations, as well as youth groups and sports clinics. Whatever kind of group you may want to host, we have a space for you!

Summer conferences can be hosted in the residence halls anytime between June 1 through July 31. We can accomodate short and long term groups.

Each residence hall front desk will be staffed during your stay to provide excellent customer service to your guests.

Two types of room accommodations are available in the residence halls for summer conferences and are available on a first come, first serve basis and are subject to date, time, and size of group restrictions:


Description Bathroom Style Rate
Air Conditioned, Double Occupancy Community $21 per person, per night
Air Conditioned, Double Occupancy Shared Suite $28 per person, per night


An invoice/inter-account will be sent to the organizing person for all housing charges after the group checks out of the residence hall. Individuals cannot be billed for keys, damages, or rental charges. The group's invoice will reflect all charges.


Grant Funded

If your group is grant funded, an invoice/inter-account will be sent upon checkout to the organizing group. Special billing requests must be received in writing before the group checks into the halls.


Each double occupancy conference hall bedroom contains two of the following:

  • XL Twin Bed (80"x36")
  • Chest of Drawers
  • Desks
  • Desk Chairs
  • Closets/Wardrobes
  • Trash Cans



Linens, pillows, and refrigerators are not provided by the University. Participants are asked to bring their own linens, pillows, and blankets. The group organizers are responsible for providing any emergency supplies.



At this time, we do not have meeting space available in the summer conference residence halls. There are two conference rooms available for rent in the WKU Housing & Residence Life central office area (Southwest Hall). Please contact Lisa Cook at (270) 745-2037 for rates and availability.
