Accommodations: Room & Board
Gustavus boasts a variety of dormitories for summer camps. Typically the Gustie Soccer Camps are housed in Uhler Hall, the closest dorm to the Student Center and Market Place, as well as the Lund Center.
Uhler Hall was dedicated in 1929 and named for a longtime professor. It was originally designed on the Harvard plan, with six stairwell/entrances (one serving each "house") opening to a common interior courtyard. In the early 1980s and most recently in Summer 2014, it was remodeled, now housing up to 185 in suites accessed from corridors on each of the three floors in both wings. Three different sizes of suites are available, including doubles, triples and quads. The lower level houses a kitchen, study room, computer room, television room, laundry and lounge.
Room Assignments and Roommate Requests
Resident campers can room with whomever they wish as long as they both request each other. All rooms are designed for two people and it is preferred that two people stay together. We can accommodate a limited number of threesomes and occasionally a quad, however these are not guaranteed. You can request a roommate via our registration form (online and brochure). If no roommate is requested, each camper will be paired according to gender/age.
Each camper will be given a set of keys (minimum of front door key and room key) and they will be expected to hold onto these keys for the duration of camp before turning them in at checkout. The college charges $75 per lost key. Lost keys are the responsibility of the camper.
Gustavus dining services will provide all meals served to campers in the Evelyn Young Dining Center. All meals during camp (breakfast, lunch and dinner for residential campers and lunch and dinner for commuter campers) will be all-you-can-eat.
Gustavus is known for its great food! Princeton Review has repeatedly ranked the Gustavus Market Place in the top ten out of all college cafeterias in the country, with the Market Place currently ranked #8. Ask anyone who’s visited Gustavus and they will probably mention the excellent food. We offer a range of food options including the grill, rotisserie chicken cooked daily, pasta, Mexican, Chinese, gluten free and vegetarian dishes, wraps/sandwiches made to order, homemade soups, an extensive salad bar, fresh fruit and desserts from our on-campus bakery!
