What does it cost to attend Reunions?

It is FREE to attend Reunions on campus, but there are costs you will pay when you register if you would like to stay on campus, attend meals, or participate in one of our special luncheons/dinners.

We encourage you to purchase meal tickets and dorms when you register. Neither will be available on site. Last year we sold out!

We will not issue any refunds after Wednesday, May 22nd.

Yes! A limited number of dorm rooms are available for alumni to reserve from Thursday night (June 6) to Sunday morning (June 9). You can reserve your room(s) when you register for Reunions. More information can be found on our Accomodations page.

Please register ALL your companions (friends, family, children of all ages, etc.). If you do not, we have no way to know that they need a bed as well! Please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements (including stair or loft bed access).

Dorm Room FAQs

Can I reserve more than one room?
Yes. You can choose how many rooms you want when you register for Reunions

Can I choose the type or room or dorm I am in?
You can add special requests when you register for Reunions, but we cannot promise to accommodate every request. ADA and family requests will be considered first.

Can my pet(s) stay with me in the dorm?
No. The only pets allowed inside campus buildings, including dorms, are registered service animals.

What is provided with my dorm reservation?

You will be provided one key and one swipe card (two keys and two swipes for double rooms), one pack of disposable sheets, a small serviceable pillow, and a terry cloth bath towel. Read more about the disposable linens. Not everyone likes them, so we strongly suggest you bring your own bedding and toiletries to make your stay more comfortable! We do not provide bath soap or other toiletries.

Can I bring a space heater or fan?
Nope! If you need additional heat or a fan, please find a Reunions staff member and they will help you out.
