Housing for the Wavelet Workshop will be provided on campus at the University of St. Thomas. Participants will have apartment-style rooms in either Morrison Hall or Selby Hall. Both are new buildings on campus and both are a short walk from the workshop rooms in O'Shaughnessy Science Hall. All rooms have internet access for those who wish to bring a laptop.
Dining for participants will be available in the Murray Herrick Campus Center. The facility is located in the center of campus and thus an easy walk from both the residence halls and the workshop site. In addition to the dining facility, there are a couple of restaurants within easy walking distance of campus and several more near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Snelling Avenue. These restaurants are a little over a mile walk from campus. In addition, there are many restaurants on Grand Avenue and there is a public bus that runs frequently along Grand Avenue that stops at St. Thomas. Click here for bus schedule information. Bus passes can be purchased at the Public Safety Office on campus or you can simply pay the fare ($1.50 nonrush, $2.00 rush) when you get on the bus. The fare is good for two hours.
Participant subsistence costs are supported by a grant (DUE-0442684) from the National Science Foundation. Depending on the number of participants, it is possible that all subsistence costs will be covered by the grant. If the number of participants approaches the maximum amount, then participants might be asked to pay for a modest portion of subsistence costs.
How to Apply for Housing
Participants who have registered through the MAA (click here for the link) will be sent an email with a login and password for accessing restricted portions of this site. Once a participant has the login and password, they can click on the link below and fill out the form to register for housing. On the form, participants will be asked to provide arrival and departure dates, special housing needs, and dietary requests. All rooms in the residence halls are for singles. Participants traveling with spouses should indicate this on the form so that Facilities Scheduling can accomodate their needs.

Parking and Transportation
Parking permits are not required in most St. Paul surface lots during the summer (June - August). Thus ample parking will be available near both the residence halls and the O'Shaughnessy Science Hall. Click here for a map that shows parking areas. Lots B or E are close to the residence halls while Lot M is adjacent to O'Shaughnessy Science Hall.
Participants will also be provided (at no charge) campus shuttle passes. These shuttles connect the University of St. Thomas St. Paul campus with the downtown Minneapolis campus. There are many restaurants and places of interest near the downtown Minneapolis campus. Click here for more information on the shuttle bus schedule. The departure/arrival point for the St. Paul campus is on Summit Avenue in front arches that connect Aquinas Hall and the John Roach Center.
