Housing and Hotel Questions

What hotels do you recommend?

We reserve blocks of rooms at local hotels at discounted pricing for every Reunion. More information about those blocks will be published on this site soon.

Can I request a roommate(s) if I stay in a residence hall for Reunion?

After receiving the email with your Reunion Housing Code, connect in the way you normally would to coordinate a night out or weekend away. Once you know which room works best for you, we suggest going online right away to secure it. Please note that each registrant will book their own bed. Example: You bought one night of housing for one guest and your potential roommate did the same, you will individually reserve your own bed in the same room. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties and will reach out to those who booked housing once resolved.  

Please note: due to the configuration of some of the residence halls, a triple or quad request may be made by assigning two double rooms.

What if I need a single room?

Please indicate that you are requesting a single room on the registration form by selecting the Single Room Surcharge. This is a $140 add on that guarantees you a single room. The Reunion Team will assign you to a single room in the dorm of your class year.

When can I check in to the residence hall?

Reunion attendees can check into residence halls at noon on Wednesday and at 8:00 a.m. from Thursday to Saturday of your Reunion weekend. You will not be allowed in the residence hall before that time. Check-out is no later than noon on Sunday.

Residence hall keys must be returned to the hall manager upon check out. Individuals will be responsible for lost or unreturned keys ($100 fine), per University policy.

What is provided in the rooms? What should I bring for the room?

Basic linens, towels, and a disposable pillow will be provided upon arrival. If you prefer to bring your favorite pillow, please feel free. You may want to bring your own soap, towels, slippers, flip-flops, and bathrobe. Please note that the rooms are basic residence hall rooms. They do not provide the same luxuries as a hotel room would.

When will I find out my room assignment?

Room assignments will be made by attendees through a webpage that will display the dorm layout. Individuals can select a specific room and bed.

Can my children stay in the Residence Hall?

Families are assigned to a designated residence hall. Families are not allowed to stay in the residence halls assigned to the individual classes. Please note that you might not be able to have adjoining rooms if you request more than 2 beds. Please note that the family residence hall will not be air conditioned.

Why is there a designated dorm for families?

In accordance with the Child Protection Policy, the University strives to provide a safe environment for all those participating in University Programs.

Are the residence halls air-conditioned?

A limited number of air-conditioned halls are available. Preference is given to the 50-Year Club and class. If you require an air-conditioned room for health reasons, please indicate this on your registration form, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Which residence hall is assigned to my Class?
