Other off-campus accommodations, such as local house rentals, must be secured independently. A non-exhaustive list of area B&Bs and other local rentals can be found here, and many residents may list on Airbnb. (Please do not call the Colgate Inn or Hotel One75 directly. Completing the appropriate form linked above is the mechanism by which to be considered for a room at one of those hotels).
We expect to be able to accommodate a limited number of RVs for reunion weekend. Site reservations will be accepted through reunion registration.
Please note that RV parking will be assigned in the General Use Lot (near Tyler's Field, behind Community Memorial Hospital) and no hookups will be provided. RV parking will be restricted to assigned locations only in order to ensure adequate parking for regular sized vehicles throughout campus.
Reunion Refund Policy
Colgate's Reunion fees cover costs associated with registration, housing, meals, programming, and more. Refunds can be accommodated up to May 15, 2024 less a non-refundable $15 processing fee. The $15 processing fee will apply to all cancellations; this fee offsets costs the Office of Alumni Relations incurs each time a monetary transaction is processed. Changes to registration options will not incur a $15 processing fee.
Refunds requested after May 15 will not be considered until after Reunion. As registration fees are applied to associated event costs, full refunds cannot be guaranteed. Any refunds approved after Reunion remain subject to the aforementioned non-refundable deductions, as well as additional fees.
As with all of the University’s public-health guidelines, Colgate will continue to monitor the national, state, and local COVID-19 situation, and thus health and safety guidelines remain subject to changes as needed. In the event that Reunion must be postponed, Colgate will offer refunds to those registered.
