Housing on the JCSU campus
We have identified multiple options for housing. The first is the DoubleTree Hotel which located less than 5 minutes from campus. The amenities of which are detailed on the web page that is linked directly to the hotel. The second option is the Mosaic Suites (49), which serves as off-campus housing for Smith students, but maintains the top floor space which is rented out for short term housing regularly for groups that have business in Charlotte or with the University. Located at 1635 West Trade Street, it includes street level retail with a restaurant, a barbershop and a soon to be added architectural firm.

Other facilities on campus that we will utilize include the Biddle Hall Auditorium (1, the Administration Building), the James B.
