Swim Meet Housing Information

A limited number of university apartments are available for rental during each summer swim meet hosted at Colgate University.


Most apartments house four people in two double-occupancy bedrooms, but we do have three-person apartments available as well. Every apartment contains a living room, bathroom, and kitchen.

Apartments will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $30.00 per person per night.

Refund Policy: If you cancel 30 days prior to the beginning of your stay, we will refund your payment in its entirety. If you cancel 15 days prior to the beginning of your stay, we will refund 50% of your payment. Within 15 days of your stay, payments are nonrefundable.

Items to Bring

The apartments are not air conditioned, so we recommend fans. Some of our guests also like to bring reading lamps, though there will be overhead lights in every bedroom. If you would like to prepare meals in the kitchen, please note that the kitchens are not stocked with utensils or cooking supplies. The kitchens each have a refrigerator, stove, and oven, but they do not have a microwave. We will provide two sheets, two towels, two washcloths, a blanket, pillow, and pillowcase per person.

Travel Directions

We've compiled directions to the Colgate campus for your convenience. Lineberry Natatorium is on Route 12B south of Taylor Lake and connected to Huntington Gymnasium. Driving from the north, it will be on your left. Signs will be posted to assist you.
