FS2012: Campus Housing
Maine College of Art offers traditional-style and apartment-style housing for FS2012 conference participants. The residence halls consist of single and double rooms (most with shared bathrooms) and double apartments. The residence halls are located within two blocks of the College's Porteous Building.
Included in the housing cost is a linen bundle for each participant, which includes: bed sheets, one blanket, one towel and wash cloth, one pillow and pillow case. Free wireless internet is available throughout the campus, but not in the residence halls. Free basic internet access is available in all living spaces via Ethernet cable, which you must provide.
