Our primary dorm, Barrows Hall, is not air-conditioned (we had plans to use a different air-conditioned dorm, but it is being renovated this summer). We are told this shouldn’t be a problem, but veteran Mythies may look askance. We will endeavor to make circulating fans available for use in Barrows Hall.

We have been informed that some rooms in air-conditioned Sheridan Hall will be available to us but at this time we don’t know how many. The downside is that Sheridan’s beds are non-detachable bunk-beds.

When purchasing a room and board package, please specify if you would prefer Sheridan Hall (air-conditioned with bunk beds) or Barrows Hall. We will assign the Sheridan rooms on a first-paid, first-served basis to those that prefer them; everyone else will be assigned a room in Barrows Hall.

As much as we always encourage attendees to stay on campus because of the communal fun atmosphere all Mythcons are noted for having, we understand that these conditions may not meet everyone’s needs. We have included some area hotels at the bottom of this page for those that would prefer off-campus accommodations.
