The Inn at Southeastern

The former President's residence at 408 W. Dakota Street is now a guest house! Accommodating Southeastern's presidents since 1940, the Inn now offers support for University programs by providing convenient housing for visiting scholars, artists and professionals. The Inn is completely furnished, contains all necessary linens, and has fully equipped kitchen facilities as well as a washer and dryer. Daily housekeeping, however, is not provided nor are foods or toiletries. Two parties may use the facilities at one time. 


Faculty may submit proposals to the Center for Faculty Excellence for housing a guest at the Inn after approval by the appropriate department head and dean. Guests to be considered include scholars, performers, lecturers, etc. and may be housed for a minimum period or a maximum of one academic year depending on the objectives of the individual proposal. Housing also includes accommodations for the guest's family if needed.


A complete application must include ALL of the following. 

Project Description 

Application Form signed by the appropriate department head and dean

Curriculum vitae of the invited guest

Faculty Sponsor and Guest Agreement signed by both the faculty sponsor and proposed guest


Please call ahead to check for availability before initiating an application.  Also, please note that if The Inn should become uninhabitable at any time after a reservation has been made it will be the responsibility of the sponsoring party to make alternative arrangements for their guests.
