Spend Your Summer at WKU

Summer Conference Housing

Are you interested in hosting your summer conference at WKU?

Our residence halls are a great space for your summer conference guests to stay.


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. Short and long-term groups can be accommodated. 

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

Please review the information below, and if you have any further questions, contact Carla Kozabo at (270) 745-3253 or carla.bohr@wku.edu. We look forward to seeing you this summer at WKU! 


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

All residence halls are air conditioned.

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.
