Conference Housing

Conference groups can be accommodated between late May and early August. 

All summer conference guests will be housed in our traditional residence halls. Guests will be living in a suite style bedroom arrangement that is connected to a bathroom. Each room has its own individual climate controlled air conditioning unit. Many of the halls also offer small lounges for guests to enjoy. The availability of space varies from year to year based on renovation projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the summer conference season at Seton Hall?
Seton Hall hosts conference guests from late May to early August each summer.

How far is Seton Hall from the airport, NYC, and the nearest train station?
Seton Hall is conveniently located from many local attractions. SHU is approximately 7 ½ miles/15 minute drive from Newark Airport, a 10 minute walk to the nearest train station, and only a 30 minute train ride from Manhattan.

Does Seton Hall have wireless internet access on campus?
Yes…but you will have to obtain the appropriate access use from PC Support Services (973) 275-2222.

Are conference guests allowed to have visitors?
Guests can have visitors if their group leader/director has made arrangements with the Housing Office. You may not have overnight guests at any time! If guests are permitted by your group, the guest must present a valid State issued ID, Military ID, or School ID.

Is there a curfew for conference guests?
There is not a specific campus curfew for summer guests. Individual group leaders may establish their own specific guidelines. We do ask all groups to be courteous of the other groups sharing the same facility, especially evening/overnight.

Is there a cleaning service that cleans the rooms daily?
No. Once you've checked into your room it is your responsibility to maintain, clean, and take out the trash until you check-out. All rooms must be left in broom-swept condition upon check out.

Is the campus safe?
Yes! The entire campus is a gated community and all guests must have a valid ID to enter and access the campus. All residential facilities have a front desk that is operational 24 hours a day by student staff and security. All guests must have an ID to enter the building.

What types of things should I pack for my stay?
Twin XL size sheets (or sleeping bag), blanket, pillow, towels, toiletries, slippers/flip-flops, and alarm clock.

Will I get a key to my room?
Each guest is issued a room key and ID card upon checking in and is expected to turn in both when checking out. If you've lost either the key or ID card you will be charged a replacement fee. Our staff is also available should you get locked out of your room during your stay. Please note that you'll be charged a lockout fee.

Does Seton Hall provide intern housing for non-affiliated Seton Hall guests interning in the area?
No, summer housing is only offered to guests participating in a conference hosted on Seton Hall University's campus or enrolled Seton Hall students.

Under no circumstances will a group leader or staff member be issued a master key for the building or their group's specific rooms.
