Two dormitories have been reserved for AUM 2008: the Twin Sisters lodge and the Patty Hyde Barclay reunion cabin. Both dormitories offer shared rooms for three or more people and a limited number of single and double rooms. Each dormitory features a large common area for gathering, meditating, and relaxing.
The YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Center has a variety of meeting spaces that can accommodate AUM. Actual room assignments will be made two weeks before AUM, but here are some of the possibilities.

Rocky Mountain National Park contains 415 square miles of the most spectacular mountain scenery in America. With its granite summits and forested valleys, the landscape inspires visitors with its immense size and beauty. The park straddles the Continental Divide, the rooftop of America where melting snow and rainfall flow westward to the Pacific or southeast to the Gulf of Mexico.
