Accommodations on Campus
The Glen Workshop takes place on the campus of St. John’s College and convenient lodging is provided in housing designed for their students. These no-frills facilities are spartan and tidy and exclusively feature twin-sized beds. Each guest will be provided basic linens: two unfitted sheets, one pillow, and two blankets, plus two towels and one washcloth. If you prefer, you’re welcome to bring linens from home. See our FAQs for more packing tips.
Triple Dorm Rooms
Triples are composed of three single rooms joined on the inside by locking doors; each room of a triple is furnished with a twin bed, a desk, bookshelves, and a dresser. Dorm floors feature shared single-gender bathrooms. Each dorm floor accommodates 8-10 people. The dorms are adjacent to the center of campus.
Double Dorm Rooms
Most doubles are composed of two single rooms joined on the inside by a locking door; each room of a double is furnished with a twin bed, a desk, bookshelves, and a dresser. (Couples choosing this option often push the beds together in one of the rooms and use the second space for luggage.) Dorm floors feature shared single-gender bathrooms. Each dorm floor accommodates 8-10 people. The dorms are adjacent to the center of campus.
Single Dorm Rooms
Single dorm rooms are furnished with one twin bed, a desk, bookshelves, and a dresser. Dorm floors feature shared single-gender bathrooms. Each dorm floor accommodates 8-12 people. The dorms are adjacent to the center of campus.
A quieter option with more privacy, suites are composed of five private rooms that open onto a small common living area; each room is furnished with a twin bed, a desk, and a dresser. Suites are single-gender only. The five occupants share one extra-large bathroom. The suites are three minutes uphill from the center of campus, offering more quiet for their occupants at the price of a longer walk to most sessions.
There are a limited number of on-campus apartments, featuring two single-occupant bedrooms, a living area, bathroom, and a kitchenette. They are a five minute walk from the main campus, also offering a quiet place to rest. Due to their limited nature, apartments will only be sold to those who register in pairs.
Whether you live local or you prefer more tailored accomodations, you’re welcome to stay off campus while attending the Glen. There’s an extraordinary array of housing options to choose from in Santa Fe, from low-cost AirBnB rentals to world-class hotels. Here is a list of some of the top-rated places to stay according to TripAdvisor.
The cost to commute to the Glen is $1,400. Just like an on-campus attendee, commuters can participate in the full run of Glen events including shared lunches in the St. John’s College Dining Hall. They’ll also receive a parking permit for the week. Attendees who are staying off campus should choose the commuter option when they register.
The Retreat Option
Artists who prefer to use mornings to make progress on a particular project or for study are welcome to attend the Glen. In addition to lodging and meals, retreating artists will have full access to the riches of Glen programming minus the morning class. Simply choose the retreat option when selecting a class and $275 will be deducted from your preferred lodging.

Eating at the Glen
Meals are included with registration and all attendees (with the exception of commuters) are provided a pass to eat together in the St. John’s Dining Hall three times each day. A wide variety of foods is offered at every meal, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. (If you have a concern about food allergies, feel free to write the Glen staff.) Common breakfast options include eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, gravy, fresh fruit, oatmeal, dry cereals, and an assortment of pastries. Lunch and dinner options range from American classics to fresh spins on Asian, Southwest, and Italian cuisines, and feature salad and sandwich-making stations.
The St. John’s Coffee Shop is also located around the corner from the Dining Hall. Snacks and meals can be purchased there all day.
Glen participants are responsible for their travel to and during the Glen. The vast majority of events will take place on the campus of St. John’s College and most participants will fly into the area and take an airport shuttle to and from campus without need for an additional vehicle. However, please bear in mind it’s likely some optional afternoon and evening events will take place off campus and require carpooling, cabs, and/or nominal additional fees for group transportation.
The nearest major airport is Albuquerque International Sunport, about one hour south of the St. John’s College campus. Several car rental agencies are located at the airport. A more economical option is to take the Sandia Shuttle to and from St. John’s. For your departure reservations, we recommend a shuttle pickup two hours before your desired airport arrival. Keep in mind that the earliest shuttle on Sunday morning, August 4, arrives at the airport around 6:30 am.
Parking is included with registration and any attendees who drive to the St. John’s College campus will receive a permit for their car for the duration of the event. Because the campus is small, no parking lot is more than a three-minute walk from the center of campus.
Linens, Wi-Fi, Parking, and More
Two towels, two washcloths, two unfitted sheets, one pillow, and two blankets are provided in all rooms. Some attendees like to bring their favorite linens from home for an extra-comfortable stay. There are also several coin-operated laundry facilities on campus.
Free Wi-Fi is available to all attendees everywhere on campus.
There is no air conditioning on campus, but the pueblo style of the buildings is designed to keep things cool, and most attendees are surprised to find that no A/C is required. That said, there are small fans available on request. The weather in Santa Fe in August is often in the mid-80s during the day and drops into the 60s at night.
