Housing/Accommodations for Parents and Families of the Class of 2004

Nightly rates are $65 for double occupancy or $50 for single occupancy.  Messages also can be left for Ellen Little, secretary at the First Church of Christ office at 860-345-6657, Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.


Housing/Accommodations for Alumni


Hotels and Motels
Alumni are strongly encouraged to make reservations at the hotel where their class has blocked rooms—even if they plan to request campus housing. Rooms are limited, and there is a high demand placed on area lodging during the holiday weekend. When calling a hotel, make sure to request the “Wesleyan Class of __ Reunion” block of rooms.  The reservation cutoff date for blocked hotel rooms varies by hotel.

Residence Halls
For alumni who prefer to stay on campus, reunion classes will be housed together in the recently renovated Clark Hall (reserved for WESeniors and the 50th Reunion Class of ’54) and the Foss Hill residence halls (reserved for other Reunion classes). Residence hall space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.


The cost is $75 per person (not per night) regardless of the number of nights you plan to stay.  An additional $25 refundable key deposit will be required when you obtain your housing assignment and key at Registration (Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, 330 High Street).


What to Bring
Keep in mind that residence hall rooms are basic, with little furniture or creature comforts. There are no private baths; each floor shares a community bath. A linen packet, including sheets, blanket, pillow, and towel is provided for each bed. The Foss Hill Residence halls are not air-conditioned (Clark Hall is); all beds are twin-sized. You might want to bring: a reading lamp, hangers, a small fan, an alarm clock, a hair dryer, a mirror, an iron, and/or extra blankets, towels or pillows. A limited number of extra blankets will be available at Registration.

Residence Hall Room Assignments
If you wish to be assigned to a room adjacent to a classmate (or classmates), you and all other parties involved must make the request in writing—and in advance—on the attached registration form (or online). We will do our best to fulfill your request. Room assignments will be available when you pick up your welcome packet at Registration.
