Fresh linens are available upon request throughout the week. The Lodge has a meeting room, a library, laundry facilities, a small kitchenette and is attached to a dining hall. Free Wi-Fi is available. A computer lab is available on campus for participants' use. Heartwood Lodge is not air-conditioned. The Lodge is built to be as energy efficient as possible. While the days do not generally heat up too much, by closing the blinds, the walls retain the night' cool air. There are fans in each room to accommodate those with a more sensitive reactive to any heat. Generally speaking, days are warm, nights are cool.
