  • On-Campus Housingplus or minus

    Staying on campus epitomizes the back-to-school experience, putting you a short distance away from Reunion Weekend events and old haunts. 

    You can register for on-campus accommodations when you register online for other Reunion Weekend events. Housing is available for Friday and Saturday nights at a rate of TBD per person for both nights. Alumni wishing to stay on campus will register individually and list the family members and friends with whom they would like to be housed. Groups of up to four alumni wishing to be placed together on campus should register by May 10, 2024.

    Please note: Due to the abundance of alumni requesting to stay on-campus space in residence halls is limited. Space will be allocated to parties when all members of the party have completed their registration.


    The 50-year Reunion class will be housed in our apartment-style housing. These accommodations have one single bed in each room and are located off a common area. These air-conditioned units feature a common kitchen, one or two bathrooms, and basic linens. Apartments are recommended for groups of up to four who wish to be housed in the same apartment.
