Kelley Center between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Housing key pick-up will only be available until 10 p.m. so please be sure to get your key before going to your evening reception.

In order to stay in campus housing on Friday night, tickets for either a Friday night reception or the Taste of Fairfield on Saturday must be purchased, and to stay on Saturday night, a ticket to the Dinner Dance must be purchased. Room-only reservations, without the corresponding event tickets, will be cancelled.

Yes. You may indicate your roommate request(s) on your registration form. Each roommate must request the other to be placed together. For parties whose roommate requests exceed the accommodations of their rooms (i.e., 3 requests for 2-bed room), we will do our best to house you near each other but this is not a guarantee. Many alumni attend Reunion without a spouse or a guest. Please plan ahead to find a roommate or if necessary, one will be assigned to you. Spots in rooms cannot be held for roommates who have not yet registered. Please note that this also applies to those staying in suite-style rooms (two rooms with a shared bathroom); we cannot hold a side of a suite or guarantee that your requested suitemates will be placed on the other side of your suite if they register at a much later date.
When packing to stay on campus, please remember that campus housing contains only the basics. Lightweight linens, towels, blankets, and pillows will be provided. You may want to bring along hangers, extra pillows and blankets, and extra towels. Fans are also recommended, particularly for those staying in a residence hall that is not air conditioned.
We have arranged for room blocks with group rates at the following locations:
Trumbull Marriott Shelton
