Logistics for both of our workshops in Summer 2015


The Brookwood Inn is an affordable hotel just off of Duke's campus near the Duke Hospital that we have used for several workshops that is a short walk to the Computer Science Building where the workshop will be held.

We will reserve the hotel rooms for the workshops in June/July 2015. We are paying for your room as long as you room with another teacher. If you want your own room, you will pay the first week and we will pay the second week (but we will still reserve the room in your name). For the two-week June workshop rooms are reserved starting Monday June 15 (workshop starts Tuesday, June 16) through Friday June 26 unless you specified you did not need Saturday night, or specified you did not need the night before the workshop starts. For the 4-day July workshop, rooms are reserved from Sunday through Thursday. If you are staying at the Brookwood, then you have to park your car at the Brookwood. Parking passes are only for commuters. We have to pay extra for the parking passes. From the Brookwood you can either walk or take the Brookwood shuttle.

  • Rate: $79/night plus tax [Note: If you share a room, we will pay for the hotel room. The rate is here for those who want their own room.] (This is the 2014 rate)

You do not need to make a reservation since we are paying for your room. We will reserve the rooms. You should have received an email from Kathy Menchaca (menchaca AT about your roommate.
