Workshop participants will stay in the Baker Village area of Luther's campus. This area is composed of 4 Nordic-style townhouses that offer comfortable, single-room accommodations. Complimentary coffee and coffee mugs are available in the kitchen of each townhouse. Each kitchen includes a stove, refrigerator, and microwave oven. (See pictures of the rooms.)

Conference activities will be held in the Shirley Baker Commons located next to the townhouses. Most meals will be catered in the Commons as well, with a few held in the Dahl Centennial Union cafeteria (~0.5 mile walk).
