Local Lodging | IUD

IUD does not offer on-campus housing.  However, there are several housing options to meet your needs.  IUD does not endorse any business, only offering assistance to help our students connect with our local area. IUD’s main classroom facility is fairly large, however in the event that student volume exceeds seating for any given class, lectures may be held at the Homewood Suites in Daphne, AL. We will alert you as soon as we know that additional space at the Homewood Suites is required.

In addition to Homewood Suites providing conference room should we need it, they also provide discounted rates for any students coming in for the 3 week classes. Please see below for information on rooms at Homewood Suites as well as other local hotels.
