The Seaside Institute is home to the Academic Village, which is comprised of seven cottages and a large courtyard space. Located across from the Seaside Neighborhood School, the Academic Village offers eleven (11) separate sleeping quarters, each with a private bath. Our Assembly Hall is right next door, and offers a meeting space that can accommodate lectures, concerts, exhibits and more. The Seaside Institute is designed to provide a campus-like venue for learning and discovering, all within walking distances to Seaside's shops, restaurants and beaches. 

The Seaside Institute can provide a space for your student and/or professional group. We do not offer vacation rentals. All groups that are hosted are the Seaside Institute must meet the following criteria:

  • A student group associated with a certified educational organization (K-12, university, etc). 
  • A nonprofit organization 
  • A professional group with an approved program (continuing education, retreat, etc).

Groups are able to reserve their dates, but are subject to approval by a Seaside Institute representative. If your group does not meet our requirements, your reservation will be released.
