Campus facilities and resources


Visiting faculty and participants can choose to stay in The Oaks #1 on the campus of Carthage College, overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan.

Please note that our campus will be finishing construction on a building that is not too far from The Oaks. I do not anticipate any major disruptions, but traffic is occasionally rerouted for trucks to pass.


Our accommodations package also includes an option for taking meals in our cafeteria, which we call "The Caf." The daily menu can be accessed here. Our chefs cannot promise to accommodate all diet restrictions, but they do their best. Click here for further information:

Please be sure to inform us of any dietary restrictions when you opt into dining services. Other on-campus dining options include Einstein's, The Red Zone, and Honest Abe's food cart.


For help with technology, access to our scholarly databases, using the Asunción Lavrin Archive, or printing, please contact the Hedberg Library, located in the center of campus adjacent to the chapel.

Running/walking/cycling paths stretch out from campus along the lake shore, and we also have an outdoor beach volleyball pit.


Please use the "South Lower Lot," which is right next to the football field. Click here for a map of our parking areas. If you are unloading bags, you may want to drop them off first at the top of the hill, then park the car.
