Alumnae/i Weekend 2019 Essentials


Housing
On-campus housing is available in our newest residence hall, Murray Hall, which is air-conditioned. When possible, reunion classes will be grouped together. If you sign up for on-campus housing and wish to have roommates, please be sure to include the names of those you wish to room with when you register. Each floor has a comfortable common lounge area, and a hospitality suite is located on the main floor. All rooms are furnished with twin beds, linen service, soap and hangers.

There are three options for guests wishing to stay on campus:
- Group Suites: For groups of 6-8 people, a limited number of group suites are available. Each group suite features four bedrooms (each sleeping two people; twin beds) and two shared bathrooms. Group suites also feature a communal gathering area and kitchenette with full-sized refrigerator. Reservations for group suites are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Group suites are not available for groups smaller than six people.
- Double rooms (each sleeping two people; twin beds) are available for alumni wishing to house with a roommate. These rooms are "cluster-style" meaning they share a bathroom with one other single or double room. These "clusters" are perfect for 2-4 guests who wish to be housed in the same vicinity as one another.
- Single Rooms: Perfect for guests who wish to have a room to themselves (twin bed). Please note that the layout for single and double rooms are the same (see Murray Hall “Cluster Style” Room layout below). However, a guest requesting a single room will not be assigned a roommate. Guests staying in single rooms may share a bathroom with up to two other guests, depending on residence hall occupancy.

Cost is per person, per night: single occupancy $70, double occupancy $60, suite $65. Check-in begins Friday, June 7 at 1 p.m.; check-out is by 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 9.
