The International Congress on Medieval Studies makes use a variety of facilities on the campus of Western Michigan University, and the Medieval Institute and other University entities are involved in supporting the enterprise. Congress locations—which include a conference facility, the student union, a classroom building, and student residence halls—are spread around the campus. Medieval Institute shuttle buses provide transportation among congress locations, but walking is often the faster option, and many veteran congress attendees recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
