Participants in the 2014 YUGA Leadership Summit will stay in a single residence hall on RWU’s campus. They will have air-conditioned rooms and share communal lounge areas. The residence hall will also have keycard access. A team of RW employees will manage the security of the hall’s residents 24/7, as well as the daily cleaning of the building.
Participants will enjoy three meals a day in RWU’s dining hall. The dining hall staff will cater to dietary restrictions and food allergies. About the food, RWU says: “Thanks to the variety, quality and locally sourced meals served up by our catering company, Bon Apetite, our dining ranks in the top 5% of the nation, according to student satisfaction surveys. It's just that good!”
