Wesleyan - Under Construction - Parking Options 

Due to several construction projects on campus, parking and access to University buildings is limited. We will do our best to accommodate the larger crowd on campus during the weekend through the use of golf carts and shuttle vans, but please expect delays and plan accordingly.
Additional parking may be available at the Middlesex Mutual Parking Garage (two blocks from campus at the junction of Court and Main streets), the Vine Street parking lot (adjacent to the tennis courts), and the Freeman Athletic Center parking lots (Cross Street and Pine Street). Shuttle vans will run regularly between these lots and all sites on campus.


The lot adjacent to the Stewart M. Reid House, Office of Admission, 70 Wyllys Avenue and the “C” lot on Church Street will be reserved for members of the Classes of ’56 and earlier, as well as for any individuals with disabilities. A parking/shuttle flyer will be included in your welcome packet. Please let us know by May 12 if you require special parking by contacting Laurie Zolty in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 860/685-3527 or lzolty@wesleyan.edu.


Thank you for your understanding during this exciting time at Wesleyan.

Don’t Forget

Bring your camera, scrapbooks, Wesleyan memorabilia, music, and anything else that will make the weekend special. May weather can be unpredictable in New England; we recommend that you bring a light jacket and umbrella. Wesleyan’s athletic facilities and fields will be open throughout Reunion & Commencement Weekend; bring your suit/bathing cap/towel/racket/softball glove/Frisbee, etc., and check your final schedule for facility hours.

 

See Who’s Here
Check out the “See Who’s Here” board at registration (Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, 330 High Street)  in order to find out where your classmates are staying and how to catch up with them.

 

Reunion Headquarters

Reunion classes will have space reserved for casual gatherings with classmates and special class exhibits (message boards, collages, artwork, and performances). These alumni lounges will be the best place to find your classmates, take a break from the weekend activities, or congregate between events. Bars will be open at all Reunion headquarters throughout the weekend.

 

Saturday Night Reunion Class Dinners

The Class Dinner on Saturday night is often the highlight of the weekend. We encourage all alumni with children to utilize Camp Cardinal (Wesleyan’s on-campus childcare program) throughout the evening so they can enjoy dinner, spend time with friends, and take advantage of late-night parties.

 

Each Reunion class is encouraged to invite members of the faculty or administration to join them for their class reception and dinner. If there is someone you would like to invite, please contact a member of your class committee or your contact from University Relations. 

 

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 block of rooms for “Wesleyan’s Reunion.” The reservation cutoff and cancellation date for blocked hotel rooms varies by hotel.
Reunion Classes have blocked rooms at:

Residence Halls

For alumni who prefer to stay on campus, Reunion classes will be housed together in the recently renovated Clark Hall and the new Fauver residence hall. Residence hall space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. A $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) and will be refunded upon the return of your keys. Residence hall rooms must be vacated by 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 28.

 

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 with women on one floor and men on another. 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

Members of the same class will be assigned rooms in the same halls. If you wish to be assigned to a room adjacent to a specific classmate (or classmates), you and the other parties must make that request in writing when you register. We will do our best to fulfill your request. Room assignments will be available when you pick up your welcome packet at Registration.
