Arrival and parking

When arriving for Reunion, guests should pull into the Appel Commons Parking Lot (186 Cradit Farm Drive, Ithaca, NY 14850).  Luggage handlers and transportation will be on hand to assist with bringing guests and luggage to headquarters.

Once the Appel Lot is full, you will continue to drop your luggage with an attendant in the Appel Commons Parking Lot, but will then be directed to park your car in A-Lot, which is being used as an overflow parking area for your class. Once in A-Lot, you will notice a parking area designated for the 60th Reunion.

A Reunion shuttle will help guests get back to their headquarter location after parking on Thursday between noon and 8 p.m. Flag the shuttle down when you see them.
