Reunions

Accommodations

Housing

On-campus accommodations are in the residence halls. It is not Club Med, but the price is right: dorm lodging is free when you register before January 30, 2015. After that, the cost is $50 a person for any length of stay during Reunions, whether it's one night or four. Children are free if they share a bed with a parent or sleep on the floor with a sleeping bag that you provide. If you want your child to have their own bed, the cost is $50. Couples and families will be housed in the same room or in connecting rooms where possible. Lodging fees do not include breakfast.

Please note that most residence halls lack soundproofing and air conditioning; nor are they equipped with hotel amenities such as fans, ironing boards, alarm clocks, or toiletries. Each room includes a single bed, towels, and linens (alumni will need to make up their own beds with linens provided), and access to mixed-gender communal bathrooms. We make every effort to place alumni from the same decade in the same dorm, but encourage you to register early for best results.

Dorms open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, June 10 and close Sunday, June 14 at 1 p.m. Drop your key at Reunions Central no later than 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 14 (unless you are planning on staying to march with Reed at Pride NW–more details here.)

Reunions Central

Upon arrival, all alumni and guests should check in at Reunions Central in Prexy to pick up a name tag, a dorm room key (if applicable), and a final schedule that includes locations. Reunions Central hours will be Wednesday–Saturday, 8 a.m.–midnight, and Sunday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Check-out time for the dorms is Monday by 9 a.m.

After-hours Arrivals

If you are arriving after Reunions Central has closed (Midnight) and are staying on campus, please go directly to Community Safety, in the "28 West" building at 5436 S.E. 28th Avenue. This building is located on the far northwest edge of campus. You'll be let into your room, then you may pick up your key at Reunions Central in Prexy in the morning.

Childcare

Childcare will be available at Reunions, provided by a vendor TBA. Specifics will be announced in the spring.

Other activities for the younger set include a Saturday carnival, the merriment of the all-class parade, a spectacular fireworks display, and more. A family room is also available Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. in Eliot 126 for diaper changing, nursing, or a quiet break. Please note that this room is not staffed by childcare workers.

Food

Bon Appétit provides excellent fare from lunch on Wednesday, June 10 through breakfast on Sunday, June 14, with vegetarian options available. You must register for Friday and Saturday dinners in advance; breakfast, lunches, and Wednesday and Thursday dinners may be purchased on site in Commons.
