At La Roche College, the dorm rooms are modern and include a bathroom, microwave, and small refrigerator. The linen set provided for each person includes a blanket, two sheets, a pillow, a pillowcase, a towel, bath mat, and a washcloth. The photos below show the “undressed” room. Bring hangers to utilize the closet hanging space. Bring an Ethernet cable to take advantage of the Internet. There is no wireless in the dorm we are using. Previous students have found bringing a single-bed mattress cover or extra blanket “just in case” adds to their comfort.
The rooms are set up for two people with two single beds, two desks and two dressers. You may opt not to share your room by paying the private room fee. There are a limited number of triple occupancy rooms at the shared rate. Just let us know who is sharing with you.
If you have any mobility or other issues, please email GRIP and we will try to accommodate your needs.
Dorm room pricing include all of the above for five nights (Sunday through Friday morning) plus fifteen meals in the cafeteria (Sunday evening through Friday lunch).
Dorms are just steps from the classroom building. This photo was taken in the dorm entrance doorway looking toward the classroom building on the left and its nearby entrance under the portico.

PLEASE NOTE: Nearby hotels are La Quinta (formerly Holiday Inn – North) on McKnight Road, the Hampton Inn on McKnight Road, and the Econo-Lodge, 105 V.I.P. Drive, Wexford. The latter has earned the Choice Gold Hospitality Award. Check online reviews before booking.
A new hotel built in 2013, Home2 Suites by Hilton, is one mile from the college. It only has king-bed suites with pull-out couch, kitchenette, and swimming pool. No restaurant on premises but you can microwave food in your room.
