Residence Halls

Apologies, all Chapman University residence rooms that were allocated for BLAST have been filled. The rooms each have 2 beds and the charge is $52 per night for single occupancy and $37 per person per night for double occupancy. There is also a one-time $15 charge for linens and towels. Note that there is no breakfast or food service at the residence halls during summer. However there are several options on campus and within easy walking distance in the town of Orange (see Restaurants near Chapman).

Arrival instructions for attendees who have a room reserved in the residence halls:

Regular check-in times are 8 am - 12 noon and 1 pm - 5 pm. At check-in you will be assigned a room (likely to be in Glass Hall).
