Low-Residency Weeks

Low-Res Week October 2016

Next Low-Residency Week: October 23-27,  2017

With our optional Low-Residency Option, you can come to SAW in May or October to connect with other students, meet our faculty and reach your goals.

We’re recently finished our May 2017 and October 2016 low-residency week. Check our Flickr and Facebook for glimpses into that.

Our next low-residency week will be  October 23-27,  2017. Come to SAW for one week to study with our faculty in a curriculum designed specifically for you and the other students. We’ll work online with you in critiques and discussion before or after if you like, to help you reach your goals.

Important information about HOUSING:

Price does not include housing.

We will make every effort to house the participants in informal and empty rooms in friendly houses in the Gainesville area. If there is a charge, it will fall on the student. We will make every effort to keep this affordable for the week. Most houses will be walking distance from SAW, but some may need bikes. We will try to accomodate this too. We will post more info as soon as we know, and email all participants personally with assistance in finding places to stay. Participants are invited to email us for assistance.

For those interested, we also recommend the Gainesville Zen Hostel, here.

Or Couchsurfing.Org, here. 

Or AirBandB, which has spare beds and bedrooms in various houses, check them out here: https://www.airbnb.com/s/Gainesville–FL
