Chardin Check-in: Regular check-in begins at 1 p.m. for early arrivals and is concurrent with Summer in Seattle registration on regular days; If you know you will arrive later than 11 p.m., you may make advance arrangements for a late check-in by contacting the Conference and Event Services Office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, or between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Fridays, at email@example.com or 206-296-5620. If you are unexpectedly delayed on the day of your arrival and therefore have not made advance arrangements, you may still go to Chardin Hall and use the phone next to the door to call Public Safety (the number will be posted, but it is 206-296-5990). They will have our on-call person meet you right at the door to let you in and get you settled. Instructions will also be posted at Chardin’s entrance to ensure you are able to check in no matter what time you arrive.
Chardin Check-out: All guests must check-out by 10 a.m. All your belongings must be removed from your room, and your key must be returned, in the packet in which it was given to you, to the Chardin front desk by 10 a.m. on the day of your check out. Limited luggage storage is available behind the desk on a first-request basis. We are sorry, but we cannot store luggage overnight.
When you arrive, you will be issued a room key and a Conference Card. Your room key will open your room door and is specifically assigned to you; if you have a roommate, that person will have their own specific key. Please bring your room key to the front desk at check-out in the envelope in which it was provided, or you will be charged a replacement fee of $175.00 (plus tax) for a new lock. If you leave your key in your room at check-out, it will be listed as “lost” and the replacement fee will be assessed.
Your Conference Card will open the exterior doors of Chardin Hall and give you access to the doors to the residential part of the building as well (for security purposes, a person can gain access to residence floors only if a specially programmed card is used). Your Conference Card will also be programmed with breakfast on the second day of Summer in Seattle. Meal hours for food service will be displayed in Chardin Hall and will be posted online as well. If you lose your card, the replacement fee is $20.00 plus tax. Please notify the staff at Chardin Hall immediately if you should lose your card so that building access can be turned off and so the meal you have on your account cannot be used.
If your plans for housing change, please remember to contact the Conference and Event Services Office. Requests for refunds must be received, in writing, by the Seattle University Conference and Event Services office by no later than 21 days prior to your check-in date. (For example, if your check-in date is July 15, 2019, you may not request a refund after June 24, 2019.)
Refunds received by the deadline will be granted, less the $50.00 administrative fee, and will be given in the same tender in which they were received. No refunds will be made for requests received after 21 days prior to your check-in date.
Requests must be submitted in writing or via email to:

Seattle University is a non-smoking campus. The use or sale of Tobacco Products is prohibited on and within all Seattle University property. Products approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the uses of mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease are permitted under this policy. “Tobacco Products” includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes, all forms of smokeless tobacco, clove cigarettes, and any other smoking devices that use tobacco (e.g., hookahs), and nicotine delivery devices that simulate the use of tobacco (e.g., electronic cigarettes, vaping). If you are a smoker, you may ask the front desk staff for the closest off-campus areas where smoking is allowed.
Use and possession of marijuana in any form, either on campus or during any university-sponsored or affiliated activity, is prohibited.
You may not allow any other person(s) to remain overnight in your room; all persons who are staying overnight must be registered and pay for accommodations.

Animals are generally prohibited in all campus buildings. Exceptions to this general prohibition include animals that qualify as “service animals” under the Americans with Disabilities Act and animals considered “emotional support animals” under the Fair Housing Act. Animals that qualify as “service animals” under the Americans with Disabilities Act are generally allowed in campus buildings. Animals that qualify as “emotional support animals” are generally prohibited from all campus buildings, with the limited exception that they may be allowed in campus residence halls in certain circumstances as a reasonable accommodation for a disability. “Service animals” and “emotional support animals” must meet all requirements for such animals under university policy, including appropriate documentation from a healthcare provider explaining the need for the animal as well as appropriate documentation regarding the animal’s training and health history. The Registrant must obtain permission in writing in advance of check-in if planning to bring any animal on campus. For information on requirements for bringing Emotional Support Animals to campus, please see the policy at https://www.seattleu.edu/ces/policies/#ESAs

The University’s facilities comply with all applicable laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, which require reasonable accommodation of persons with disabilities. You are responsible for notifying the University of any requests for reasonable accommodation that would require modification of University facilities. Such notification must be made at least six (6) weeks in advance of check-in so that the University can consider the request, determine whether the requested modification constitutes a reasonable accommodation or creates an undue hardship, and can enter a dialogue regarding the requested accommodation, if necessary. Not all campus facilities are equipped to accommodate individuals with special needs. The University reserves the right to assign persons needing special accommodations to appropriate facilities that may be separate from others utilized by the Registrant. If notice is not provided by the deadline, the University may not be able to accommodate requests for special accommodations. If you have any questions, please contact Conference and Event Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you wish additional food items not included in your Meal, you are welcome to purchase those with cash or credit card.
The following unfortunately cannot be provided by Seattle University. Therefore, we suggest you bring:
Weather in Seattle is typically very mild. Summer is usually comfortably warm, but Seattle can sometimes be subject to heat waves, for which you should dress accordingly. Fans may be rented from the front desk for those few days when the temperature climbs above the 70s.
Because we are so close to the coastline, it does cool down quite a bit in the evenings, so it is best to be prepared for that as well. It does sometimes rain— the average summer rainfall is 1.1 inches or 2.8 centimeters, therefore an umbrella or rain jacket may be of use on occasion.
The sun is usually up rather early (about 5:30 a.m.) until late (about 9 p.m.). If you have trouble sleeping when it is not fully dark, you may wish to bring an eye mask.
If your family or friends need to reach you in case of an emergency, they may call the front desk (Bellarmine: 206-296-6280) anytime from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., every day, including holidays. Our staff will do our best to locate you immediately during your program.
If an emergency occurs when the desk is not open, please have your family or friends contact the Seattle University Department of Public Safety, which is open at all times:
Emergency Line: (206) 296-5911
Non-Emergency Line: (206) 296-5990
