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 February 1, 2013. After that, the cost is $50 per single bed for the duration of your stay. 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 a bed, the cost is $50. Couples and families will be housed in the same room or in connecting rooms. Lodging fees do not include breakfast.
Please note that the residence halls are not luxury hotels and lack soundproofing and air conditioning; nor are they equipped with 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 noon on Wednesday, June 12 and close Sunday at 1 p.m. Drop your key at Reedfayre Central no later than 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.
Upon arrival, all alumni and guests should check in at Reedfayre Central in Kaul Auditorium to pick up a name tag, a dorm room key (if applicable), and a final schedule that includes locations.
