1440 offers a minimalist approach to design and function while hotels offer more modern comforts; therefore, guests at 1440 spend the majority of their time outside of their guest room engaged in immersive learning and community building activities with limited distractions. 1440 has no minibars, in-room coffee makers, televisions, telephones or room service, typical to most full-service hotel and resorts.

There are no bottled waters in the guest rooms at 1440. Guests are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and utilize the complimentary filtered water-filling stations in each building around campus.
1440 expects all guests to honor the 10:00 p.m. lights-out and quiet time mandate to afford all guests a good night's rest to optimize the learning experience - all public campus facilities are typically closed at this time.
All guests have access to Signature Classes facilitated by 1440 teachers at least three times a day.
Traditional resort offerings such as valet parking, bellman and concierge services are not offered at 1440.
Guests at 1440 are not allowed to invite others to visit since the campus is private and closed to all non-registered guests. There are local restaurants and bars nearby should guests wish to meet a friend off campus.

Yes. 1440 meets all requirements for ADA compliance and offers those with special needs several options while on campus to make their stay more comfortable including, but not limited to, special room accommodations, accessible ramps, transportation assistance and communication devices. The ADA requires that accessible rooms be "dispersed among the various classes of guest rooms" to provide people with disabilities "choices of types of guest rooms, number of beds, and other amenities comparable to the choices provided to other guests."
Since 1440 is the site of a former college, it is important to note that the campus is situated on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous convenient accessible pathway between points on campus; however, it is accessible. To ensure access between buildings that do not have an accessible path between them, we offer an accessible shuttle. This shuttle is provided to transport guests from parking areas to accessible pathways leading to campus buildings and to transport guests between accessible pathways so that they can enter each building. For additional questions about accessibility and to coordinate your transportation while on campus, please contact us at least two weeks in advance of your arrival at (844) 544-1440 (Option 1) or [email protected].

For a family member or friend to stay with you, they must be booked under their own reservation even if they aren't taking a program (they must still be charged for their learning experiences, meals and room) and children under the age of 18 are not allowed on campus unless the program is designated for families.
