Housing, Travel, and Campus Resources

Our institute's participants will be housed in Willkie Quad on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. Willkie is a newly renovated dormitory with air-conditioned, fully furnished, spartan but functional rooms. All the rooms we have reserved have both Willkie Quad exterior view Ethernet and wireless Internet computer access.  The two-bedroom suites share a common bathroom.  Bed linens and towels are included in the cost, which has not been finalized at this writing, but will be approximately $48 per person per night.  The building is walking distance from the Main Library and is conveniently located on both the Indiana University bus lines and Bloomington city bus lines, giving residents easy access to the rest of campus, shopping centers, and downtown Bloomington. The campus offers a variety of dining options, and there are also many wonderful off-campus restaurants within reach by foot or by means of the bus system.

If you come to Indiana University via air, you will fly into the Indianapolis Airport. The Willkie Quad is serviced by both Bloomington Shuttle Service and Star of America shuttle service, which will transport you directly from the airport to Willkie. If you come to IU via car, you can purchase a campus parking tag for your three-week stay. As of this writing, a "C" permit would cost $9 for three weeks; an "A" permit would cost $24.

Staying on campus will give you easy access to the many campus resources of particular relevance to the institute: the Archives of African American Music & Culture, the Black Film Center/Archive, the School of Education Library, the Law Library, the Lilly Library, the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library, the Kinsey Institute library, the IU Art Museum, and the oral history archive of the Center for the Study of History and Memory.  These collections include extensive resources in manuscripts, journals, maps, films, art, and sound recordings.

The campus also provides excellent physical recreation and cultural recreation facilities. The campus has two recreational sports and fitness facilities: the Student Recreational Sports Center, and the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Building. These facilities include weight rooms, swimming pools, and indoor tracks. As of this writing, weekly passes to the SRSC are $22.50, and to the HPER are $15.50. The Indiana Memorial Union has dining options, a bowling alley, a pool room, a Starbucks coffeehouse, films, and lectures. IU Bloomington is also the home of our world famous Jacobs School of Music, which has a summer music series with many low-cost or free concerts, recitals, and performances.
