Room, Board, and On-Campus Housing Amenities

Each four-room suite consists of four single-person bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a shared common space. Each Summer Scholar will be assigned a single bedroom with an adjacent bathroom shared between two persons and a common space shared among four persons.
Bedroom and Bathroom Amenities
Each Northwest Quad bedroom includes the following amenities: a locking door, carpeted floors, individual, locking closets keyed to the bedroom door key, data port and cable outlet, ethernet connection, individual climate-control, and lofted bed with desk, chair, wardrobe, and chest of drawers.

Northwest Quad Amenities & Resources
While staying at Northwest Quad, Summer Scholars will be able to utilize several other amenities and resources provided by the residence hall. These include an elevator, community computer lab, kitchen, laundry room, lounges, and free Wi-Fi. In addition, Conference Services provides a weekly linen service; for $14, Summer Scholars can receive a linen packet that includes a flat and fitted sheet, pillow and pillowcase, towel, washcloth, and blanket. If necessary, Summer Scholars can receive fresh towels free-of-charge from the Northwest Quad front desk during the Institute. Summer Scholars should note that while they are welcome to use any of these resources, the Institute Project Team nor Conferences Services can guarantee availability of, for example, dishes or pots and pans in the community kitchen or laundry detergent in the laundry room. Summer Scholars planning to make use of these facilities should plan to provide any additional materials on an individual basis, if necessary.
Dining On-Campus in Fulbright Dining Hall
The Northwest Quad is connected to Fulbright Dining Hall, where we will be eating all on-campus meals for the duration of the Institute. Fulbright provides an array of dining options, including options for Summer Scholars in need of vegan and gluten-free options.

Summer Scholar Stipend and Cost of Room & Board
As indicated on the Stipend Deduction Form, each Summer Scholar will have a portion of their $2100 stipend deducted for one of the following reasons: to cover the cost of on-campus housing and on-campus meals, or to cover the cost of on-campus meals for those staying off-campus. Summer Scholars staying on-campus and dining on-campus can expect the following rates to apply to their cost of room and board:
- $34.27 per night for room;
- $29.87 for three meals per day in Fulbright Dining Hall;
- $14 one-time fee for a week’s linen service.
University and Housing Policies
As with any university-owned facility, Northwest Quad asks all residents to adhere to certain university policies. For Summer Scholars, it may be helpful to note that the University of Arkansas campus and all facilities are smoke and tobacco-free. Additionally, Conference Services maintains alcohol-free facilities during summer operations; this applies to residents over the legal drinking age as well.
