  • Air conditioning and heat

  • Kitchenettes and vending machines
  • Computer lab
  • Lounges and common areas
  • Walking distance to cafeterias and recreational facilities

Rooms typically feature: 

  • Extra-long twin bed

Building security and live-in university staff are on site to respond to needs around the clock. In addition, Great Connections staff are available 24/7 to students.

Great Connections locations are optimally close to multiple restaurants and public transportation. This also ensures that students can fully enjoy their free time.

Seminar attendees enjoy an end-of-event celebration at the private residence of founder Marsha Familaro Enright and her husband, John Joseph Enright IV.
