Reunion 2014

Housing, Registration, and General Information

ACCOMMODATIONS

Dorms

Dormitory accommodations are available on Friday and Saturday nights. One electronic access key to the front doors of the dorms will be provided to each dorm room, regardless of the number of occupants. Individual dorm rooms do not lock, so please leave your valuables at home.

Dorms open at 10 a.m. on Friday and close at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Room assignments are made in the dorm assigned to your class, as space permits. Preference for special rooms is given to those with special needs and very young children in order of the date by which we receive your registration online or your paper registration is postmarked.

Rooms include a pillow, bed linens, blankets, soap, and two full-body but smaller towels. Guests must bring anything else. All beds are singles and there are shared (mostly co-ed) bathrooms in the hallways. Almost all of our dorm rooms will be air-conditioned for Reunion 2014; however, we cannot guarantee air-conditioning. If you reserve more than one bed, they might not be in the same room.

Please let us know if you have any physical limitations. Our dorms are old, and many have single steps in the hallways, or bathrooms with tubs or showers but not both. In order to assign you to the correct room, we must know if you have difficulty walking steps, require a shower, or bath or anything else that would be pertinent. Knowing this in advance will help eliminate last-minute on-site room changes.

Dorm pricing is per person, for the full weekend.

Hotels

For those interested, Bryn Mawr has discounted room blocks at area hotels. To reserve, call the hotels directly before their cut-off dates (listed below) and request the Bryn Mawr College Alumnae rate. All hotels are serviced by local taxis. Additionally, we will provide one bus pick-up in the morning and one drop-off in the evening to all hotels. Times will be provided at Reunion Weekend.
