Each apartment contains a washer and dryer and has a large kitchen area with a refrigerator and a microwave oven.
Linens (sheets, blanket, towels, bed pillow) are not included. Towels and a pillow are available for an additional $15 fee for those traveling by air. Everyone (driving or flying) needs to bring regular twin sheets and a blanket.
Meals will be taken in the Wingate University cafeteria, with the exception of the catered Helen Kemp Dinner and lecture event. Because conversation and interaction at meals is an integral part of the Institute experience, participants must purchase either:
The Helen Kemp Banquet is included in both meal plan costs.
