Two writer’s studios are near housing and dining facilities; other studios are a 10-minute walk from housing.

Meals: Lunch and dinner are prepared by a professional chef, Monday-Friday; residents prepare own meals for breakfast and on weekends in The School House’s fully-equipped kitchen.

Accessibility: Housing, studios, and common spaces are accessible; there is some distance between housing and studio buildings which requires transportation or walking.
