Primary Residence – Trafalgar Castle School
Since its founding in 1970, the Summer Institute of Church Music has housed most of its faculty, students and activities onsite at Trafalgar Castle School.
Accommodation and meals at Trafalgar Castle School remains the most economical option, but many others exist nearby.
Students interested in meals and/or accommodation at Trafalgar Castle School should note the following:
- Accommodation space at Trafalgar Castle School is limited, and will be assigned on a first come/first served basis. It may not be possible to fulfill all requests for private accommodations; after these spots are assigned, applicants will be asked to share.
- Although many people with limited mobility are able to navigate this historic building while attending the Institute, please be aware that it is not fully accessible. For more information on its suitability for your own situation, please contact the House Manager.
- Trafalgar Castle School can accommodate most special dietary needs (e.g. vegetarian) providing advance notice has been given via the on-line registration form or by contacting the House Manager.
- Sleeping rooms are not equipped with air-conditioning and can become quite warm in July. Fans are provided in all rooms.
