Originally designed to house an emergency shelter, the Waller Center’s dormitories may host up to 50 people overnight from non-profit groups doing charitable work in the city. The dorms provide low-cost, safe, private, and handicap accessible accommodations on a separate level from the building’s community meeting spaces. A minimum of one set of keys will be distributed to each group to allow independent access to the building.

Bunk beds are available for the first 20 overnight guests. Additional guests may sleep on our Cabela’s cots. Visitors must bring their own towels, pillows, and bedding to place on top of the mattresses and cots (many groups bring sleeping bags). Groups have access to four shower stalls located in the dormitory level restrooms. Storage lockers are available for visitors who bring their own locks.

Two twin beds and one full bed are available for those who do not wish to sleep on cots. Group members must decide among themselves who will sleep in the beds. When more than one group is present, the site coordinator reserves the right to determine which user groups have access to which bedrooms.

Reservations of our dormitories also come with access to our gathering room. When multiple groups are sharing the dormitories, the gathering space must also be shared.


Other meeting rooms may be available when community events are not taking place.
