About Kripalu Housing Options

In the tradition of retreat-style housing, Kripalu accommodations are designed to support your program experience without the distraction of televisions, telephones, etc. Accommodations at Kripalu are in the main building, Shadowbrook, and the new environmentally green Annex, still just a short walk away from everything:

Standard Plus Rooms

(includes the Annex)

These rooms are perfect for those who want a real retreat. The rooms include simple d├ęcor, a queen-size bed, or twin beds. Some rooms are situated near hall bathrooms, while others include a private bath. All rooms in the Annex come with a private bath.

Standard Rooms

These simple, peaceful rooms are a great mid-range option. They measure 8' x 12' and include a queen-size bed or platform twin beds. Hall bathrooms are nearby.  Note: We have a limited number queen-size beds for the above rooms. Please register early to ensure bed choice.


These accommodations provide an opportunity to meet people from all over. The dorms allow for 5-22 people per room, and offer simple bunk beds and nearby hall bathrooms. Each dorm bed comes with your own alarm clock, reading light, and a safe to store valuables. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee lower bunks. If you cannot use an upper bunk, please choose another type of housing. Dorm housing sells out quickly; please register early.
