We are happy to provide two convenient options for lodging. You are welcome to stay on-campus for no additional cost, or if you prefer, you can stay off-campus at a nearby hotel.

On-campus lodging - included in registration fee: Conference participants will enjoy on-campus lodging (single-occupancy apartment-style or private single-room with bathroom) conveniently located to all dining and conference venues and a pleasant walking distance from downtown St. Joseph. When registering for the conference, please indicate any accessibility needs.

Off-campus lodging - not included in registration fee: Off-campus lodging is also available at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, St. Cloud, Minn., a 13-minute drive from campus. Reservations and arranging transportation to and from off-campus lodging are the responsibility of the participants and can be made by contacting the hotel directly at 320-252-5900.  The conference rate has expired (as of June 11) so you'll want to ask for the current rate.

No adjustments to the conference fee will be made for off-campus lodging.  


All meals are included in the conference fee.  When registering for the conference, please indicate any special dietary needs including gluten-free, lactose intolerant, vegetarian and vegan.  

Transportation and Campus Maps

Please visit "About CSB and SJU" for more information on transportation to campus and conference location venues. Note: Attendees are responsible for their own transportation to campus. CSB and SJU are approximately 85 miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Rental cars or an airport shuttle service are convenient ways to get to campus. Visit Executive Express for more information on costs and schedules. More information will be provided to participants upon registration confirmation.

If you plan to make transportation reservations on Executive Express to and from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport and the College of Saint Benedict, you are encouraged to make them by July 8 to guarantee a seat using this shuttle service. For rates, schedules and costs, please visit Executive Express.

Note: Due to summer road construction along the I-94 corridor near the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University, please allow two to two and one-half hours for mid-day travel back and forth from the campuses and the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.
