Lodging:
Lodging at the Franklinton Center will be reserved for those requesting the Impacted Community Scholarship and the Student Work Exchange until September 30, then available rooms will be opened up to General Registrants (i.e. lodging for scholarships is not guaranteed after September 30). All Franklinton Center rooms will have at least 2 people per room. All registrants that have requested lodging at the Franklinton Center must notify the Coordinators by October 10 if lodging is no longer needed; otherwise, we will ask you to pay $25 for the dorm room and $40 for the hotel-style room.

Those that are General Registrants and would prefer to stay at the Franklinton Center will be put on a waiting list. On October 1, any available rooms on-site will be assigned to the General Registrants on the waiting list. Dorms will cost $25 per person and hotel-style rooms will cost $40 per person. People that do not want to stay on-site or that need to have lodging secured prior to October can reserve a room at the Country Inn & Suites for $79.00 per night for Friday night under the reservation name NCEJN.

Additional Off-site Lodging information for General Registrants: The Country Inn & Suites has reserved 5 rooms with two queen beds and 3 rooms with one king bed for EJ Summit attendees. You are responsible for contacting the hotel directly to book your rooms and to make it known if you are willing to share the double queen room with another EJ Summit attendee. The King rooms also have a roll out bed for an additional $10.00 if you would like that option. When you call the Country Inn & Suites, make sure to say you would like to book one of the rooms reserved for NCEJN.

The room rates are $79.00 per night for Friday night only under the reservation name NCEJN. The deadline cutoff date to reserve a room is October 7th. Because there is a big baseball tournament being held in Rocky Mount the same weekend as the EJ Summit, all hotels are being booked solid. The NCEJN reserved rooms at the Country Inn & Suites will be released by the end of October 7. Any reservation cancellations will have to be made by October 12th.
