Retreat-style Campus & Vegetarian Meals

Meals & Lodging Options During Residential Sessions

Mount Madonna Center provides on-site housing and meals for Institute students in an environment highly supportive of learning the Institute’s disciplines. Students have a choice from a wide range of housing options. Rooms are in hotel-style buildings (no phones or TVs in rooms). Some rooms include a private bathroom with shower. Others have access to nearby shared (but private while in use) bathrooms and showers.

Cabins are located in a forest grove, and include electricity and heat, but not indoor plumbing. A separate shower house with private shower and dressing rooms, and clean, well-ventilated privies is nearby. Campgrounds are located in secluded redwood groves and have running water, tents provided by the Institute, and tent sites for your own tent.
