Welcome back to dormitory life—without room checks, lights out, and study hours! For those looking for a true throwback experience during Alumni Weekend, we are happy to offer on-campus accommodations. All classmates are grouped together in the same dorms.
The fee to stay on campus in the dorms is $25 per person for the weekend. Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and can be made during your Alumni Weekend registration.
While both nostalgic and convenient, please remember that dorms do not offer the same amenities as full-service hotels.
- Social activity in the dorms tends to continue late in the evening, so please take this into consideration as you are making your plans.
- Interior and exterior doors of dormitory buildings remain unlocked throughout the weekend. Please be prepared to secure your valuables accordingly.
- All rooms contain single/twin beds. Double occupancy rooms contain two single beds.
- For each bed reserved we provide a set of sheets, one blanket, one pillow, a towel and washcloth, and a bar of soap. Additional toiletries are not provided. You are welcome to bring any other needed accessories, such as lamps, night-lights, clothes hangers, fans, hand mirror, alarm clock, heavy blankets, and extra pillows and towels.
- Dormitories are not air-conditioned. We encourage our dormitory guests to bring fans.
- Dormitories feature bathrooms that are single-gender; alternating male and female baths per floor.
- Guest WiFi access will be available and password will be provided upon check-in. Should you need access to a computer, the Student Center will be open all weekend with computers available for your use.
- The William W. Higgins '53 Aquatics Center and the school's Athletic Center will be open throughout the weekend. Hours will be posted in the Alumni Weekend Schedule.
- Rooms are not equipped with phones; however campus phones are in each dorm building in case of emergency. Cell service is available throughout campus, but may be limited in some areas of the dormitories.
