Accommodations - Santa Fe
During the summer conference season, guests are housed in one of four separate residential areas on campus: the upper dorm area, the lower dorm area, the suites and apartments, and the new Winiarski Residential Center, which opened in June of 2012.
We are thrilled to be able to offer Enhanced dorm rooms within the three dorms of the LEED Silver Winiarski Residential Center. Ferdinand, Ariel, and Miranda each house 15 guests who are able to enjoy a specially furnished common area with a fireplace and nearby break-room. Pleasantly lit by clerestory and floor-to-ceiling windows, these areas are perfect for studying, chatting, or meditating on the gorgeous views surrounding campus. Individual rooms are well-appointed with a wardrobe, bed, desk and shelving as well as a campus phone, Ethernet port, and wireless access. The bathroom (one on each floor) is equipped with three sinks, two toilets, and two showers, one of which is accessible for people with disabilities. A wall of cubbies for personal toiletries is also at hand. Located at the west end of campus, across from the lower dorm area, the WRC includes open, as well as cozy, courtyard and garden space.

Situated on either side of the center of campus, the 16 territorial-style dormitories in the upper and lower dorm areas provide a combination of single- and double-occupancy rooms. All of our dorms are small and intimate with just two floors per building, housing 10 to 18 guest residents with one bathroom per floor. Most single dorm rooms are located in the lower dorm area, while the upper dorm area contains mostly double dorm rooms. Many of the upper dorms have one or two doubles that can be used as three-room triples.
All dormitory rooms are comfortably furnished with beds, desks, bookshelves and built-in dressing units. Balconies, common rooms and landscaped courtyards provide additional meeting and living space. Each bedroom has its own phone for free local and incoming calls; long distance calls may be made with a calling or credit card. Each room also has an Ethernet port and wireless access. Laundry facilities are located throughout campus for the convenience of residential guests. Linen is provided.
Upper Dorm Room
Just beyond the upper dorm area are eight spacious suites, each with five single bedrooms for a total of 40 rooms. The suites are carpeted, have a common living room, large bathroom, and open onto lovely courtyards. Each bedroom has the same furnishings as the dorm rooms as well as a phone, Ethernet, and wireless access. The living room in each suite is cozily furnished with a couch, chairs, tables, and lamps. While affording plenty of privacy, the suites are especially conducive to developing friendly relationships among conference participants.
For additional privacy, the college has nine two-bedroom apartments at the uppermost end of campus. These are also carpeted, fully furnished, and contain a modestly furnished kitchen and private bath. Some apartments have one double bed and one twin bed, and others have two twin beds (one per bedroom). Courtyards and mountain views make these accommodations a particularly relaxing sanctuary from a busy conference day full of meetings.
Residential conferences have the option of full or partial board plans, with a required minimum of one meal per day, usually breakfast. Participants are welcome to pay cash in the dining hall or coffee shop for meals not included in a partial board plan. Guests dine in the college dining hall, which has a seating capacity of 350. To meet the special needs of individual groups and meeting schedules, the college provides an on-campus catering service as well as a full-service coffee shop.
Accommodations at St. John's College are not air conditioned.
