College of the Atlantic boasts carbon-neutral, creatively-renovated, and inspiring spaces directly on the coast.



For housing and meals, we offer several options:

  • For the all-inclusive option, participants will lodge on the campus of College of the Atlantic with options to stay in single occupancy or double occupancy dorm rooms in the Davis Village (pictured above, right) or other spaces.
  • The workshop only option includes participation in the workshop, craft talks, and events, and also includes a meal plan (3 meals per day or 2 meals per day), allowing participants to arrange their own housing in off-campus lodgings of their choice.

We will share our meals each day, providing us an opportunity to continue and deepen our community discussions.  But don’t get worried that you’ll be stuck with stereotypical college cafeteria fare!  The College of the Atlantic’s dining hall was just ranked in the nation’s top ten college dining experiences by the Princeton Review.  So rest assured, we are going to share some excellent meals together.

From the College of the Atlantic’s Dining Services website: The food served at COA is amazing. Whether you’re a fan of curries or carnitas, a vegan or an omnivore, you will eat well at COA. The kitchen emphasizes the use of local, organic ingredients.  Meat is humanely raised and seafood is from sustainable sources. In the fall of 2012, the first chickens raised at the college’s Peggy Rockefeller Farms appeared on the menu. Baked goods are made from scratch and cuisines from around the world are incorporated into the weekly menu. Special dietary needs are accommodated on an individual basis.
