Lodging for Conferences
Shepherd University offers our guests a variety of accommodation choices from May through Early August. You are sure to sleep well whether you choose the economy of our traditional-style buildings (Shaw and Thacher Halls), the 2017 constructed all-suites hall that features Tempurpedic mattresses and microwaves/fridges (Potomac Place), or the convenience of our apartments complete with full kitchens (Dunlop and Printz). All accommodations are air conditioned and include WiFi access and laundry facilities at no cost to our guests. Bed and bath linens may be provided for a nominal fee. Ample, close parking is available free of charge for summer conference groups.
