Travel & Lodging


Blocks of rooms have been reserved at the Village Inn, Carnegie Guest House, Cedars Bed and Breakfast, and Homewood Suites from July 31st through August 2nd. As of 6/21 rooms are still available at Village In and at Homewood Suites. Contact them directly to reserve a room and indicate you are with the Liberal Arts Macroeconomics Workshop. The blocks of rooms will be held until July 1st.


The Village Inn and Carnegie Guest House have the advantage of being on or directly adjacent to campus, though space is limited. The Cedars and Homewood Suites are each just under a mile from campus. A shuttle will be available to and from the Homewood Suites. Davidson is a very safe, walkable town, and ride-sharing services also operate in the area. Please feel free to contact Caleb Stroup with any questions.
