Class of 1974


The housing application portal is now live. See link at bottom of page. 


Reunion guests are invited to stay in College residence halls. As undergraduate residences, these spaces do not offer the amenities found in a hotel, but their convenience to on-campus events makes them popular housing options.

Assignments and Waitlists

Due to the large number of applications we receive and limited buildings we have on campus we anticipate a waitlist for some reunion classes. We cannot make assignments in real time, so the waitlist is forecasted, but this information will be communicated when it is known. At that time, you will be given the option to remain on the waitlist or be removed and issued a refund.

Room configurations differ by location. We do our best to keep applicants with each other, and classes in their assigned buildings until we reach capacity and begin using overflow locations. At that point assignments are based solely on application dates and room availability. Guests will not share a room unless they are on the same application. If guests are on the same application, we do our best based on room configurations available. We are not able to arrange location accommodation unless there is an accessibility request.

Occupancy Dates

Rooms for guests from the Class of 1974 can check in anytime after 10:00 am on Friday, June 7. Checkout time for guests is by 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 9.

Due to the large number of guests staying in the residence halls during the Commencement and Reunion period, we cannot accommodate early arrivals or late departures. If you need to stay an extra day, you need to make alternative housing arrangements. Information about off-campus accommodations in and around Hanover can be found here.

Rates and Applications

Reunion guests are invited to stay in College residence halls. As undergraduate residences, these spaces do not offer the amenities found in a hotel, but their convenience to on-campus events makes them popular housing options. The Reunion Online Housing application will be available on February 29, 2024 at 8:00am EST.

The nightly rate for Reunion guests is $62.00 per person per night. The deadline for submitting applications is April 3, 11:59pm EST. Late applications will be assessed a $10.00 late fee. Guests whose applications are submitted after the application deadline will be housed only if space is available.


Several of the buildings available for Reunion housing have accessible first floor rooms, and a few have elevator access to all floors. Service animals accompanying guests with disabilities are welcome in the residence halls. Accessible accommodations can be requested in the Personal Requests section of the online application.

Family Housing

Dartmouth's residence halls have a variety of room types available, many with multiple bedroom units. When possible, these adjoining rooms will be used to accommodate family members or friends who do not require a separate, unconnected bedroom. It is important to fill out the online application with names, ages and relationship(s) of members of your party so we can determine the best housing accommodations.


Pets, other than service animals, are not allowed in the residence halls.


The online application accepts payment using MasterCard, Visa, American Express or electronic check.

Information on Residence Hall Accommodations

Please remember that the residence hall accommodations, although convenient, do not offer the amenities of a fully staffed hotel. Our staff will work very hard to make your rooms as comfortable and as clean as residence hall rooms can be. Because students will have just vacated the rooms, there will not be enough time to do minor repairs and maintenance. Keep in mind that we do not provide daily maid service, all of our rooms contain single (twin) beds, and the majority of our rooms do not have private baths. As part of our services, we do provide linens, a blanket, and a pillow per guest. 

Check-in will be at the class tent which is the McLaughlin Cluster front lawn beginning at 10:00 am. 

There are some residence halls that have parking lots adjacent to the building; as space is allowed you may park there over commencement weekend. Guests arriving before 4:00 pm will want to park in metered spaces if no parking lots are available. Guests arriving after 5:00 pm on Friday or any time over the weekend may use any campus parking lot, including the Dewey lot behind the Life Sciences Center on the corner of Lyme Road and North Park Street, and the Thompson Arena lot on South Park Street. Parking is not permitted in driveways or emergency access areas. See the Visitor Parking information here.

We will have staff available until 11:00PM in the Mid Massachusetts Reunion Housing office.

Application Deadline/Late Registration

Applications are due on April 3, 2024 at 11:59pm (EST). Applications submitted after the deadline will be subject to a $10 late fee.

Changes to Application

You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your online application once it is submitted. If you need to make changes to the information you submitted, please contact our office by telephone (603-646-3288) or e-mail Commencement.and.Reunion@Dartmouth.edu.

Notification of Assignment

Those who apply by the deadline will be housed first and notified of their housing assignments the first week of May. Assignments for people who apply after the deadline will not begin until all on time applicants are made. Housing is not guaranteed, but we will accommodate as many people as possible with the available resources. We will make late assignments after all on time assignments are complete in the order that they are recieved.

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be made in writing or email.
