    Hotels at universities

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any universities that have hotels on campus. A lot rent out their student accommodation over the summer, but I was wondering if any had a purpose built hotel on site.
    I know that ANU in Canberra does, but are there any more, international examples welcome.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Quite a few in the US

    Penn State has the Nittany Lion Inn http://www.pshs.psu.edu/NittanyLionInn/nlhome.asp

    Virginia Tech has the Inn at Virginia Tech http://www.theinnatvirginiatech.com/

    Do a google hunt and you will find quite a few as it seems to be the next big thing going for Universities.

    The Inn at Ole Miss

    http://www.theinnatolemiss.com/overview.htm

    overlooking the oak lawn in the center of campus, known as "The Grove" the Ole Miss Alumni House, now known as the Inn at Ole Miss, housed my mother on many occasions, when she game to visit me during my undergrad years (I guess my room in the frat house was not clean enough for her... go figure!).

    Randolph Macon Womens College in Lynchburg, VA has an old dorm on campus that has been turned into a hotel.

    The accomodations are spartan to put it nicely.





    Incidently, the college is no longer exclusively for women... I like to think that the guest accomodations were so bad that visiting males threatened to stop coming and this caused an uproad among the student population; or maybe parents threatened to stop paying their daughters' tuition?

    Ahh RMWC lovely campus, one of my sorority sisters ended up graduating from there and I would go stay with her in her dorm. A dumpy building behind the Main building.

    Thanks for the walk down memory lane

    Most university unions I'm familiar with have lodging accomodations in them.

    And a hotel management program to go along with it.

    The Carolina Inn is adjacent to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It hosts most families during big games and graduations.
