Overnight accommodations are available for mobility-impaired individuals. If you have accessibility concerns, we suggest that you check with the island registrar or conference registrar to see if our facilities will accommodate your needs. If you need accommodations on a first floor or near a bathroom, or require an electrical outlet for a medical device, please indicate such on your registration form.
While Star Island does not guarantee availability of any specific rooms or room types, priority is given to those with self-identified accessibility or medical needs. The assignment of accessibility rooms, first-floor rooms and motel units will be prioritized based on a variety of factors including but not limited to, communication of need, availability of accommodations, and registration date.
Pets: Conferees and guests are not permitted to have pets on Star Island. Service animals are welcomed, but we ask that you provide us with advanced notice by contacting Justina Maji, Conference Center Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Water for bathing is provided by the rainwater cistern; showers are available every-other-day.
Keys & Locks
There are no locks for most of the sleeping quarters, and conferees are not furnished with keys. This is a safety measure in the event of a fire and to prevent children from locking themselves in a room. There is a locked closet in Newton Centre, and its key can be picked up at the Front Desk by the appropriate conference staff at the beginning of the week and returned to the Front Desk before leaving the island.
