Where to Stay

Many families ask about staying on campus over Commencement weekend, and we are happy to accommodate their needs by opening the student residence halls.

Due to the limited supply and the high demand for on-campus housing, we ask you to extend the courtesy to consolidate your guest room needs. This will allow the university to accommodate as many families as possible.

To reserve a dorm room on campus during Commencement weekend or to order special meal tickets, please visit the Housing and Meals Registration Page.
