Is the university paying for the hotel accommodations?
Yes. The university is covering the costs of all hotel rooms for students who are assigned to Cambridge Hall. This includes only the cost of the room. Incidentals, such as room service or other additional charges, are not included. Auburn is paying the hotel directly for the rooms.
If the university is covering the cost of the hotel, are there additional charges or costs that I will be responsible for?
Students will only be responsible for incidentals, such as room service, or any damages associated with the room upon checkout.
How will University Housing know I need to stay in a hotel until I can move to Cambridge?
We ask that you email University Housing at email@example.com to confirm that you need hotel accommodations by 4:45 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 9.
Do you have enough hotel rooms reserved for all who need rooms?
We have reserved enough rooms to ensure that every student assigned to Cambridge, as well as Resident Assistants and university staff, has their own bed. Some rooms may have two beds and two students assigned; other rooms may have one bed and one student assigned.
How do I check in to the hotel?
University Housing will work with you to check in to your assigned hotel. The hotel will have your reservation on file at the front desk. They will ask for a credit card for incidentals, such as room service, and other charges.
Is Auburn providing additional security for students staying in the hotels?
RAs and/or additional University Housing staff will be present at each hotel. Please reference the safety and security tips provided on the University Housing website and Hotel Safety Tips provided on the Campus Safety and Security website.
Will I have access to laundry at the hotel? Am I responsible for the cost?
Additionally, a free wash and fold laundry service will be provided at all hotels. This will consist of a weekly scheduled pick-up with a two-day return. Students also have access to the free university laundry facility located at Quad Center. Contact your Resident Assistant to learn more about laundry options.
Will there be desks within the rooms where we can still have a workspace?
Each hotel room has a workspace available for guests.
Will linens be provided at the hotel? What about microwaves or refrigerators?
Yes, the hotel provides linens. You may wish to bring a pillow or throw blanket, but it is unnecessary to provide bedding or towels. Each room will have a microwave, coffeemaker and mini fridge for use during your stay.
How long will Auburn University provide a hotel room for me? What if I need to stay longer?
You will continue to have university-provided hotel accommodations through Wednesday, Aug. 30. It is imperative that you secure alternate housing arrangements before Aug. 30. If you do not have a long-term housing solution in place by Aug. 30, you will be responsible for securing another room in the interim.
If I incur any incidentals, how will I be charged for those? Is that my responsibility?
When you checked into the hotel, you left a credit card on file at the front desk. This card will be charged for any incidentals or damages incurred during your stay. If you have questions about these charges, please contact the front desk of your hotel.
