Each room has a twin bed, desk, chair and dresser for each resident and each guest will be provided with a linen pack consisting of two flat sheets, a blanket, a pillow, a pillowcase and two towels. The dormitory will be monitored by both Summer Conference Housing staff and Jazz in July staff at all times. Further benefits of staying on-campus include free wireless internet, free parking near the dormitory, access to coin-operated laundry facilities, convenient health and wellness services at University Health Services, and close proximity to both downtown Amherst and public bus routes.
