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, 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 in St. Cloud, Minn., a 13-minute drive from the College of Saint Benedict campus. Reservations for off-campus lodging are the responsibility of the participants and can be made online or by contacting the hotel directly at 320-252-5900. Be sure to request the CSB/SJU conference rate of $119 for a King Studio Suite or $122 for a King Bedroom Suite. You will need to place your reservation by June 14 to guarantee inclusion in this block of rooms. No adjustments to the conference fee will be made for off-campus lodging.


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