Essentials for Reunion Classes

Wesleyan University is thrilled to invite you to Reunion & Commencement Weekend, May 19–22! 

Per COVID-19 campus visitor guidelines, all guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” means receiving a booster shot within 30 days of CDC eligibility.

Reunion Class Hotels and On Campus Housing/Residence Halls

Hotels: Special rates have been arranged for alumni attending their Reunion.  When calling any of these hotels, please ask for a room in the “Wesleyan Reunion” block.  We advise all alumni to make sure that you understand the hotel’s cancellation policy before confirming your room. Wesleyan cannot be held responsible for non–refundable room cancellations. A list of recommended hotels for reunion classes can be found on the Reunion & Commencement accommodations page.

A full list of area hotels is available on Wesleyan's visitor's guide

On-Campus Housing/Dorm Rooms: A limited number of on–campus residence hall rooms will be available to reunion alumni only on a first-come, first-served basis beginning when Reunion registration opens in Spring 2022. These rooms often sell out before registration closes so if you're counting on staying in a residence hall room make your reservations early. Most rooms are doubles, and there are shared bathrooms in each hall. You will have the opportunity to reserve a single or double room. Unlike a hotel, you receive the room for the entire weekend (Thursday-Saturday) as we are unable to turnaround rooms on a daily basis.

Single – $200 (includes Thursday–Saturday nights)
Double – $325 (includes Thursday–Saturday nights)

We will do our best to place you near classmates but depending on the type of room you select, you may be limited to certain residence halls. Wesleyan will not assign roommates. Alumni do not have to tell us who their roommates are unless someone other than the person purchasing the room is picking up their key at registration. Please email to make arrangements for key pick–up if this is the case.

Please note:

Most rooms are doubles and beds can be moved or pushed together.

There are no private bathrooms. Bathrooms are shared and some are gender neural. 

Room assignments will be available when you arrive on campus and check in at Registration. We apologize that assignments cannot be made available in advance of Reunion.

Residence hall rooms must be vacated by 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 22.

Please keep in mind that residence hall rooms are basic, with little furniture or creature comforts. There are no private bathrooms. Beds are twin–sized. Basic sheets, a light blanket, a pillow, and a towel are provided, but we recommend that you bring an extra blanket, pillow, towel, toiletries (soap), etc. Wesleyan does not stock the bathrooms with paper towels.

You may also want to bring hangers, an alarm clock, a hair dryer, a mirror, an iron, and/or other amenities. Before you arrive on campus, please check the local weather forecast and plan your trip accordingly.


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—and if you’re staying in a dorm room—an extra blanket and towel. 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.

Visitors with Disabilities

The University is committed to full access and reasonable accommodations for all people. Please visit the Reunion & Commencement Accessibility section for more details.
