If you're looking for affordable, comfortable housing and an easy way to arrange meals for a large group, come stay at Southern Oregon University!

Come for the educational experience of a lifetime to see plays at the Tony-Award winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival here in Ashland. Stay in special guest halls available year-round, dine in the Hawk dining facilities, take theater classes on campus, explore famous Lithia Park, go rafting on the Rogue River, and tour the historic gold-mining town of Jacksonville.

Every year, SOU Conferences houses 10,000 visitors who range from middle school students to athletic camps. Attracted by the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival repertory theater and Ashland's unique cosmopolitan-yet-small-town atmosphere, it's quite common to have groups return to visit us year after year.

Nestled between the Cascade and Siskiyou mountain ranges, Southern Oregon University has been named one of the top "hidden gems" by The New York Times in an article ranking the 20 best schools in the country. We'd be delighted to arrange a special presentation for your middle school students or a campus tour for high school or college-age students.
