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.

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).
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
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.
