Accessibility: We will be running a golf cart to help you get to and from key locations. The golf cart is available for moving luggage to and from your vehicle on Wednesday and Sunday. The meeting rooms and other facilities we will be using are wheelchair accessible (by elevator in some cases). Friends with larger or motorized chairs may encounter some difficulty maneuvering in some places.
Parking: Parking is complimentary for all registered guests – there is no charge and no permits are required. Conference guests must park in the designated campus parking areas. Primary parking will be in lot B1 off of Whitworth Drive, beside The HUB. Additional parking is available in lot B2, near the dorms. Parking is NOT allowed in the Whitworth Presbyterian Church parking lot off of Whitworth Drive next to lot B1.
Internet Access: “Guest” Wireless Internet access is available in all buildings on campus with no password required. Instructions on how to reach it will be available upon your arrival – no videostreaming will be available through this access.
Swimming: We will not have access to the Aquatic Center on the Whitworth University Campus. However, there are several municipal aquatic centers within 5-10 miles of campus. The closest is Shadle Aquatic Center. To get more information about public pools in Spokane go to: https://my.spokanecity.org/recreation/aquatics
Dorms: Arend Hall will be our primary dormitory. It is just across the street from The HUB – our central dining and meeting locations. Baldwin-Jenkins Hall will be our secondary dormitory. Stewart Hall will be reserved for Junior Friends and their Advisers. Dormitories are all of a traditional nature - most rooms are double occupancy, with a few single and triple rooms available. There is no elevator availability in any of the dorms.
PLEASE NOTE IF YOU NEED TO BE ON THE GROUND FLOOR.
As usual, we will also have separate sleeping areas for Young Adult Friends and the LGBT group, Families, and Adults without children present. Special requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Couples and families who register together will be housed together unless you provide specific instructions otherwise. People who register alone and want a specific roommate should indicate that person’s name in the Lodging Notes box (online) or on the paper Registration Form.
RVs are allowed on campus this year. All RVs must be self-contained and be registered with appropriate campus security and facility services personnel. No water or electrical power is available. No pets are allowed to stay in the RV. The designated parking lot for self-contained, registered RVs is Lot B2. Key cards will be made available to RVs for access to dorms for shower and bathroom use.
Camping: Camping is not allowed on campus, but there are campgrounds at Riverside State Park within 10 miles of Whitworth for those who prefer to camp – they have accommodations for both RVs and tent camping.
