Old Summer Toots
Toot participants will be housed in Concordia's brand-new Residence Hall dorm (location H on the campus map...) The accommodations are 2-person suites with private bath, and all linens are provided.
Here is some information about the residence hall layout, furnishings, and amenities (look about halfway down the page). If you prefer not to stay in a dorm, there are numerous hotels in the surrounding area.
Concordia's dining facility on their new campus is run by Sodexo, a world-class integrated food service and facilities management company. The variety and quality of the food offered is a real step up from the dining hall on the old campus (as Danny Johnson and Susan Richter have sampled, and can attest). Vegetarian diets are well accommodated by the food service.
A "commuter" meal plan is offered (lunches and dinners only), in order to encourage commuters to take advantage of the fellowship, conversation, and convenience of the on-campus facilities — all valuable aspects of the workshop experience.
Although we have made every effort to keep prices from rising, it is simply the truth that costs for housing and meals have gone up from 2 years ago. We appreciate the consideration that Concordia University has given to the Texas Toot as a longtime summer presence on their campus. We hope that all past and prospective Toot attendees will compare the costs here to those of other workshops hosted on college campuses, and think you will see that they are really quite reasonable.
The Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is approximately 35 minutes by car from the Concordia University campus. Ground transportation from/to the airport is available via shuttle service or taxi.
The Toot staff is available to help you solve transportation quandaries. If you will be flying in, please click here to send us email (or address your own email to firstname.lastname@example.org) with your flight times so we can help coordinate those arrangements more efficiently.
If you need other assistance with transportation information, please contact us.
There will be a few rooms available for those who need to arrive a day early, or to stay an extra night (around $38 per person for room only). Try to book return flights around mid-afternoon on Saturday.
