On-Campus Lodging

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.

Applications for on-campus housing will be available in Winter 2024. Housing assignments will be made after the application deadline. Guests whose applications are submitted after the application deadline will be housed only if space is available.

Residence hall rooms are available for occupancy from 2 p.m. on Friday, June 7, until 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 9. The College is not able to accommodate any guests on Thursday or Sunday night.

Students who are graduating may retain their own rooms until 12 p.m. on Monday, June 10. 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.

The Commencement and Reunion Housing Office is located in the main lounge of Mid-Massachusetts Hall. The office is staffed daily from 8 a.m. - 11 p.m. beginning Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9, to assist guests with questions, accommodate late arrivals, and handle any emergencies. The residence halls open at 2 p.m. on Friday and close at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Off-Campus Lodging

Many local establishments begin taking reservations one year in advance and sell out quickly. If you choose to stay off campus, we strongly recommend that you arrange accommodations for commencement weekend as soon as possible.
