Campus Housing
Campus housing will be available as part of the reunion registration form. If you have any questions about on-campus housing, please call Shelby Doyle at 315-228-7700. Please note, we have limited on-campus housing available for reunion.


Off-Campus Housing
While rooms are limited, you may express interest in hotel accommodations at the Colgate Inn or Hotel One75 via the Hotel Interest Form. We ask that you please do not call these hotels directly, as these reservations can only be made through the Office of Alumni Relations.

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.

Email to become involved in your class’s reunion planning efforts.

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.
