Hotels

Hotel arrangements are not coordinated within the Family Weekend program and must be made separately. Each family is responsible for making its own reservations. It is highly recommended that hotel reservations be made immediately due to the large number of visitors expected on campus during this busy weekend.

For vehicles entering after 4pm on Friday, a flat rate applies. Vehicles entering before 4 p.m. will pay the hourly rate for the entire length of their parking stay. The garage closes nightly—please refer to the posted closing time.

The 15A OC shuttle runs to lower campus only until 10:30 p.m. on Friday. The 10A Upper Campus shuttle will run through the weekend; the 10A stop is at Sutherland Hall.
