On-Campus Lodging

Residence Hall Accommodations

Guests are invited to stay in College residence halls. As undergraduate residences, they do not offer the amenities found in a hotel, but their convenience to on-campus events makes them a popular housing option. Residence hall rooms are available for occupancy from 2:00 pm on Friday, June 9 until 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 11. The College is not able to accommodate any guests on Sunday night.

Students who are graduating may retain their own rooms until midnight on Monday, June 12. Early graduates who are returning for Commencement and their spouses or partners are guests of the College in residence halls for that weekend, but they must return an application by April 10.

The Commencement and Reunion Housing Office is located in the main lounge of Mid-Massachusetts Hall. The office is staffed 24 hours a day beginning Friday to assist guests with questions, accommodate late arrivals, and handle any emergencies that may arise. Commencement staff also will be stationed in each of the residence halls from 8:00 am to 1:30 am during Commencement weekend to assist guests during their stay. The residence halls open at 2:00 pm on Friday and close at 2:00 pm on Sunday.

Starting March 1, applications can be found at and should be completed by April 10. Guests whose applications are submitted after the application deadline will be housed only if space is available. A $25 fee will apply for canceled reservations. Written cancellations must be received by May 8.
