Class of 2020 Celebration


**Please note that the deadline to apply for housing has passed. Space is limited and we may not be able to accomodate late requests, but please send an email to the Commencement and Reunion Housing Office for consideration.** 


Class of 2020 Celebration 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.

Occupancy Dates

Rooms for Celebration guests will be available for occupancy after 2:00pm on Friday, August 5.
Checkout time for guests is by 2:00pm on Sunday, August 7.

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

Personal Requests
There is a section of the online application for individual requests. Examples might include a request for a handicapped accessible room, or a first floor room.  We cannot guarantee that we will be able to fulfill your request, but we will do our very best.

Several of the buildings available for Class of 2020 Celebration 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. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to fulfill your request, but we will do our very best.

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.

There is no fee for room reservation for the Class of 2020 Celebration. Dartmouth reserves the right to charge a $25 cancellation fee for any cancellations after July 15. 

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. Most of our buildings are small and have no more than four floors, and are equipped with television rooms, kitchens, public telephones, floor bathrooms and coin-operated laundry facilities. As part of our services, we do provide linens, a blanket, a pillow, and towels for each guest.

The check-in process is still being determined.  Please check back at a later time for updates.

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 4:00pm will want to park in metered spaces if no parking lots are available. Guests arriving after 5:00pm 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 website for additional information.
