On-Campus Housing

Dorm rooms are available Thursday (for the 50th reunion class only), Friday, and Saturday nights for individuals registered for Full or Mini Weekend packages. On-campus housing is not available for individuals who are not registered for Alumni Weekend or who select Day or Night packages. Learn more about package pricing.

Room requests are processed when the Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement receives the registration form and full payment. Rooms are assigned in the order registration is received; you will be notified if we are unable to accommodate your room request.

As a reminder, dorm rooms have only the bare essentials: two sheets, one pillow and pillowcase, one blanket, two towels, and soap. Bathrooms are communal and rooms with private baths are not avail­able. Please note that most dorms do not have airconditioning.

Only double and single rooms are available for Alumni Weekend and, as such, if you request more than two beds during registration your party will be split into multiple rooms. 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.

Every effort is made to house reunion class members together in the same dorm. 

On-campus housing for Alumni Weekend has reached capacity and is now closed. If you would like to be added to the wait list if on-campus housing becomes available, please click here.
