On-Campus Housing

UPDATE: For classes returning June 15-18 on-campus reunion housing is full, with an existing waitlist. If you have not booked your stay for your Reunion, please use the Off-Campus Housing Resource on the right for alternative options around the Upper Valley.

Classes of 1957, 1962, and 1967: Find your housing registration information here.

Once you’ve registered for Reunion, you may register for on-campus housing in student residence halls. Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis. On-campus housing is limited and not guaranteed for all attendees. Assignments are made by class and are based on the best option available when your housing application is received. You will be notified of your housing assignment in May.

Register for On-Campus Housing
On-campus housing registration is a separate transaction and cost from your Reunion registration. Residence hall accommodations are $50 per person per night. Forms and fees are due to Residential Operations. You may register online using your registration code beginning March 1, 2017. After April 10, a one-time charge of $10 will be added per application. We recommend that you book your on-campus stay as early as possible to guarantee housing with your classmates. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted.

Personal Needs
If you have personal needs or requests (handicap accessible, cribs, etc.), please make note of these specific requests on the application.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations must be made in writing. A $25 fee will be charged for cancelling any housing reservation. A refund, minus the fee, will be issued by the end of June if your written cancellation is postmarked by May 8, 2017.

Off-Campus Housing
Hotel and other off-campus accommodations are not provided through the Office of Residential Life. Find information on off-campus accommodations under the Housing / Off-Campus Housing link at the top of the page.

What to Expect During Your Stay in the Residence Halls
All residential hall rooms are furnished with twin beds. Most share bathrooms, kitchens, and television rooms, as well as coin-operated laundry facilities. Linens, a blanket, a pillow, towels, a cup, and a bar of soap are provided for each guest. Guests with disabilities should note their personal requests on the application form. No pets are allowed other than service dogs. We will have attendants on duty 24 hours a day to assist with any questions or unexpected needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Couples, singles, and families with children of all ages are welcome to take advantage of our dorm space. However, applications should be returned early, as there are a limited number of rooms and beds available on campus.

The size and condition of the room depend upon the dorm you stay in. Some dorms have newer and more up-to-date facilities than others. All rooms are cleaned once students have left campus and are made ready for your stay.

Beds are metal-framed, extra-long twins. Mattresses are standard and are generally new, but may not suffice for some. If you have back trouble, it is a good idea to bring or obtain a foam topper for your bed.

Each room generally contains two to three beds. Usually each family will be assigned to a single room, depending on the number of beds needed to fit your family’s needs.

The College provides each guest with two sheets, two towels, a pillow, and a blanket. However, these items are functional rather than luxurious. If you tend to get cold or have any other special needs, we suggest you come prepared.

Most dorms are either across the street from or right next to the reunion tent. This does mean that noise into the evening can become a factor. However, bars must close by 1 a.m. and alumni generally tend to disperse before this time (depending on the class).

The security of your room and your belongings depends upon you. The best protection you can have is being responsible and careful of your own belongings. Always lock your doors and windows (if on the first floor), especially when the room is unoccupied. We suggest you leave your valuables at home, but if you do decide to bring them, take precaution. Also, Safety and Security is on duty 24 hours a day and will be happy to assist you if any problems arise.

There are two types of bathrooms: Some dorms have single-sex, group bathrooms on your floor or the one directly above or below; other dorms have single-room, unisex showers or bathrooms. They are kept clean throughout the week. Showers have small soaps and bathrooms have paper hand towels.

This depends on your individual needs and your ability to transport your extras. Many people bring:

  • Hangers
  • Toiletries (these are not provided by the College)
  • Hand mirror for your room
  • Large bath towels
  • Blankets (depending on the weather in Hanover)
  • Slippers or shower shoes
  • Swimsuit, tennis racquet, other recreational equipment
  • Rain gear (umbrella, poncho, raincoat)
  • Sunscreen and bug spray
