Housing Assistance

There’s no housing available on site, and students must find and pay for their own “home away from home” while attending.


The Brainerd/Baxter area offers a lot of hotel and resort options, and during the summer months you may find some homes, cabins, and apartments available for rent as well (craigslist is a good place to look). When contacting a potential place of stay please be sure you inform them that you’ll need the room for 11 weeks, and keep in mind that you may be asked to pay a deposit.

Below is a list of possible hotel/resort options arranged nearest to farthest from the school;

Rental home on the Mississippi River!
