Alumni and families get a ride to their on-campus accommodations

On-Campus Housing

On-campus housing for Alumni Weekend 2017 has reached capacity and is now closed. We cannot accommodate walk-in housing registrations during Alumni Weekend.

Every effort is made to house reunion class members together in the same dorm. To ensure housing with your class, register early.

Rooms with private baths are not avail­able, and dorm rooms only have the bare essentials: linens, a pillow, a blanket, two towels, and soap. You may want to bring clothes hangers, an iron, a small reading lamp, and an alarm clock. Because most dorms do not have airconditioning, we suggest bringing a portable fan, as many students do.

Children may bring sleeping bags and share parents’ rooms for no extra charge. We cannot provide cribs during Alumni Weekend. Please bring your own if you anticipate needing one.
