Housing & Meals

Alumnae and students at dinner

Reserve your on-campus housing and meals when you register. The cost is $150 per single bed and includes breakfast. Room assignments are given when you arrive, as many students still reside in houses through the Reunion II weekend. The fee cannot be prorated on a per-night basis. Housing is complimentary for 70th to 80th Reunion classes and meals are complimentary for 65th to 80th Reunion classes.

Note: Alumnae registering as 1776ers (those not in one of the Reunion classes) will be automatically placed on a wait list for on-campus housing. We will notify 1776ers by the registration deadline about whether we can accommodate them. Payment for housing will be due upon notification.

Housing

Alumnae and guests will be housed with their reuning classmates in multiple houses assigned to the class. Housing will be located in or near class headquarters, which is the main gathering place for alumnae.

  • Housing is reserved by the bed, not by the room.
  • Depending on availability of rooms, some double rooms (2 single beds) may have to be assigned to accommodate all alumnae registering for housing.
  • The housing fee is $150 per person per bed. The package rate includes Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with continental breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. This fee cannot be prorated on a per-night basis.
  • Room assignments will be issued when you check in.
  • Alumnae will be grouped by class year whenever possible.
  • Please do not bring valuables as you will not receive a key to your room.
  • Children may stay in a parent’s room at no extra charge; however, sleeping bags, porta-cribs and linens should be brought from home.
  • Guests are accommodated in the student residences whenever possible.
  • There are no special housing or restroom arrangements for male guests or children. These assignments are at the discretion of your class.
  • Smoking is prohibited and pets are not allowed in campus buildings (with the exception of certified service animals).
  • Refrigerators are available in house kitchenettes only.

Student residences have:

  • Single beds (some double rooms with two single beds are available and used for families and/or couples)
  • Two to four flights of stairs
  • Rooms that may be warm or cool, depending on unpredictable New England weather in May
  • Community bathrooms
  • Noise (depending upon other residents in the house)
  • Some have elevators (Chase/Duckett, Comstock, Cutter/Ziskind, King/Scales, Lamont, Northrop/Gillett, and Wilder Houses)
  • Bedding (sheet, blanket, pillow, pillowcase) and towels (bath towel, face cloth, bar of soap)

Student residences do not have:

  • Air conditioning (except Cutter/Ziskind) or fans
  • Private bathrooms
  • Bedside reading lamps
  • Quilts (extra blankets are available)

Off-Campus Housing

If on-campus housing is not for you, you may prefer to stay in a hotel, motel or B&B in the Northampton area.
