WMU Aviation conference

Residence halls

During the summer months, conferences are housed in Western Michigan University residence halls. Each hall has a front desk with staff that will assist with registration, check-in, check-out and provides service during the camp stay. The staff is knowledgeable about campus and the Kalamazoo area.

Linen packets are provided unless otherwise indicated. Pillows are provided upon request and campers should be instructed to bring their own blankets or sleeping bags for comfort.

Conveniently located near campus dining rooms, the residence halls are an affordable way to stay close to campus activities and experience university life. Depending on the location, bathrooms are either community or suite-style, and hall floors or wings are divided by gender.
