Special arrangements can be made with the C&E office to facilitate key return during the hours our office is closed. For a fee C&E will provide a hall clerk to manage your registration and check-out.

Meal Plan Information

Dining Plans - A dining plan is a group of discounted meals at the Class of 1953 Commons, Dartmouth's all-you-care-to-eat dining facility. The "meals" portion of your dining at Dartmouth can only be used at '53 Commons. Your program can have up to four different configurations of dining plans. Each plan beyond four will require an additional processing fee.

Declining Balance Cards - A cash amount is put onto each participant's card. C&E will help you with estimates. Once the card is activated, the dollar amount of that card will be included in the calculation of your conference bill. Your final bill will be 80% of the net total of amounts placed on the cards or the amount actually used, whichever is greater. Although declining balance cards are designed for use at Novack and Collis Cafes, meals can be purchased at '53 Commons with declining balance cards at the full door price.

Special Meal Requests - Information on special dietary needs or restrictions for any participants should be communicated to DDS three (3) weeks prior to the start of your program. Please contact Beth Rosenberger at 603-646-1740 with this information.


Some area's within residential halls are not accessible. If you have any questions regarding accessible accommodations, contact the C&E office. Dartmouth works to ensure that programs, services, and activities are accessible to all.

Frequently Asked Questions

Other On Campus Needs

Gym Passes - To purchase day passes to Alumni Gym please contact your summer program intern.

Mail/UPS - is the responsibility of the program coordinator. No deliveries are accepted in the Conferences and Events offices. There is a UPS store in the True Value Hardware on South Street and the Post Office is located on the corner of Lebanon and Main Streets.

Cell Phones - Hanover is located on the New Hampshire side of the Connecticut River Valley between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Because of this, cell phone reception can be limited in Hanover. Please remember to bring your cell phone charger and adapters (international travelers should bring US compatible plugs).

Computing Facilities and Internet Access - Dartmouth College provides each room with free high-speed Internet service; you need your own laptop computer with wireless access capabilities to access the service. Guests should connect to the Dartmouth Public Wireless Network (SSID). No authentication will be required; you will be routed to a public ISP for access to the Internet.
Campus libraries and other campus facilities are equipped with computers and Internet connections. However, because printers, fax machines and copiers are few and far between on campus and in town, we recommend that you do not try to maintain your office routine while attending a program.

Weather in Hanover - Daytime and overnight temperatures in Hanover can vary drastically. A local forecast, provided by the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, VT, can be found here.  Be certain to bring a coat and comfortable, waterproof walking shoes or sneakers.
