Accomodation Dormitories The Graham Miller Centre's accommodation units are clean and comfortable, fully carpeted and heated. Each of the three identical units sleep 54 people, totalling 162 people. They are divided into bays with bunks, with storage areas under the lower bunks. The floors in the accommodation units are covered with carpet and surface areas with vinyl. Toilets and showers are built into each accommodation unit for your comfort and convenience. There are night storage heaters in the sleeping areas and bathrooms, coupled with fully insulated walls and ceilings which guarantees warmth all year round. In each unit there are three separate rooms for supervisors which can double as counsellor rooms during the day, if necessary. The buildings are designed to house both male and female with separate sleeping areas, toilets and showers. We supply mattresses on bunk beds, while guests are to provide their own sleeping bags or linen, towels, blankets and pillows. Tui Ridge Park reserves the right to assign groups to their units based upon the number of people in the group and their special needs. A dormitory plan is available.
