Where can I stay in Ithaca?
We encourage you to stay with your class or association in the residence halls, but some alumni prefer to stay in hotels. Alumni Affairs has reserved blocks of rooms for classes/associations at various local hotels, however, at this point in time it is very unlikely that there are any rooms left. You can call hotels directly to see if they are accepting names for wait lists.
You can also contact the Chamber of Commerce at 607-273-7080 or www.visitithaca.com for a complete listing of bed and breakfasts, short-term rentals, motels, and hotels.
Can I stay at the Statler Hotel?
The Statler serves as the Reunion headquarters for the Classes of 1937, 1942, 1947, and 1952. In addition, some members of the class of 1957 will be staying at the Statler, as will some alumni with mobility needs. We do not encourage alumni from other classes/associations to attempt to make Statler reservations. Please contact the Chamber of Commerce at 607-273-7080 or www.visitithaca.com for a complete listing of bed and breakfasts, short term rentals, motels, and hotels.
Which residence hall is my class staying in?
Each class or association is assigned a residence hall for the weekend. Visit your class/association Reunion page for information about your class/association housing. Please note: guest rooms in the residence halls are not air conditioned. You may wish to bring a small fan to help keep you cool and comfortable during your stay.
How much does on-campus housing cost?
Housing fees are $65/adult per night or $150.00/adult for all three nights. Rates for children (age 12 and under) are $33/child per night or $66 for all three nights. There is no charge for children who do not need a bed (sleep in a port-a-crib, inflatable beds or sleeping bag on the floor, etc.) and stay in a parent's room. Reservations and payment for housing should be submitted with your class/association registration.
Can I stay in a dorm if I’m not registered with my class/association?
Yes. Non-Reunion Year alumni - this includes any alumni who choose not to register with their class or association - can pre-register online or during Reunion weekend at the Reunion Information Center, newly located in the Tsai Family Atrium in the Statler Hotel School off of East Avenue from: Please note that if you plan to stay at Non-Reunion Year housing, you must check in at Sheldon Court to purchase a button and receive a room assignment.
