Availability/Booking Policies

Because our residence halls are so popular among Seattle University students, on campus accommodations are provided in the summer months only. Generally from mid-June to Labor Day, upcoming availability includes:

June 16 through September 4, 2013

We are able to offer lodging, food, and meeting space as a package only, and may contract only with groups or organizations. We are sorry, but we are unable to offer accommodations on an individual basis.

Groups that are booked by students, faculty and/or staff members for programs that will have an official affiliation with Seattle University will receive special consideration for summer housing:

  • Discounted rates are available on housing and facility charges
  • Minimum stay requirements are waived
  • Booking fees and advanced deposits may be waived

Be sure to become familiar with the Seattle University Sponsored/Hosted Group policy [link to 1.2.5.0.2] and request a waiver form if your program will meet the criteria!

Housing Registration Services

For a per person fee, usually charged to the participant, Conference and Event Services will accept registrations for housing and meal plans from participants of your group.  CES will set up the online registration site, collect the funds, and be responsible for any housing or meal plan guarantees for these groups.

Certain minimum numbers of participants apply.

Suite Style Lodging

Seattle University is proud to offer our newly remodeled suites for summer guests. Chardin Hall not only offers one- or two-bedroom suites with their own bathroom facilities, but also meeting space right within the building.

Chardin Hall boasts the following complimentary amenities:

  • Parking right in front of the building
  • Concierge services at our desks; our staff will research routes, print maps, and give you all kinds of resources and information upon request

With 140 beds, eight meeting rooms right in the building, a computer lab, parking right in front, and comfortable lounge and garden spaces, Chardin Hall is a retreat center that is amazing to find on a college campus. There is parking close to Campion Tower residence hall and the Murphy Apartments, so it makes for a wonderful choice for larger programs that want to offer several options to their participants.

Chardin is also just a sky-bridge walk away from the Student Center’s larger facilities, so it is close to the heart of campus as well.

For groups that want comfortable and impressive amenities and pampering at a college campus rate, Chardin is truly an incredible value.

Apartment Lodging

The Archbishop Murphy Apartments come with parking right below the apartments.

“Choice” is the word when it comes to the apartments!  We have four styles of apartments available. All apartments have free parking right downstairs, kitchenettes, and bathroom facilities. The available configurations are:

  • Studio, with separate bathroom
  • One-bedroom, with two beds and living room
  • Townhouse, with two single bedrooms and living room
  • Quad, with four single bedrooms, two bathrooms, and living room

Available for longer-term stays if desired, there is a one-week minimum stay required for any apartment reservation. For hosted or sponsored groups, however, the minimum is waived and shorter stays may be arranged. 

The Murphy Apartments are also a perfect place to accommodate program VIPs or special guests; even if the majority of your participants are staying in another building, you may reserve a space or two in the apartments to provide more privacy to special program members.

And speaking of “special,” ask for our Signature Service—even more amenities! Each guest will arrive to find chocolates on the pillows, hotel-quality bedspread, desk lamp, iron and ironing board, rotating fan, and a hair dryer in the apartment. We strive to ensure that you only have to bring your clothes so that you can spend all your attention on the program!
