Alumni Weekend Housing

On-Campus Housing Options

One of the best things about Alumni Weekend is that you and your family can stay on campus and extend the reunion festivities beyond scheduled events. This year, alumni have the option to stay in either Holmes Hall or the Apartments

All housing buildings have secure key-card access, kitchen facilities, and large common areas. They do not have air conditioning.

To make room, roommate, accessibility and other special housing requests, please email Caroline Mead at

Please note that guests are responsible for any damages that occur and that no pets are allowed in on-campus housing. 

If you have a service animal and would like to stay on campus, please contact Caroline Mead at or 503-768-7955. 

On-Campus Housing Rates

Housing is offered per bed, per night, based on the type of lodging preferred. Lodging is offered starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 25. The final check-out day is Monday, June 29. On-campus guests turn their key in at Campus Safety at the end of their stay.

HOLMES HALL - $63/bed/night 

APARTMENTS - $70/bed/night

Please note, pricing is per bed and linen pack. All beds are single beds. If you are bringing small children who do not need a separate bed and linens, you do not need to register them for housing, however, we will need their names and emergency contact information. Please do register them as a guest at Alumni Weekend so we are sure to have a name tag ready for them. Room keys and building access cards will only be issued to each paying resident. 

Checking in and out of On-Campus Housing

You will pick up an access card and key for each person you register when you arrive on campus. If you arrive on campus during a time when Alumni Weekend Check-in is closed for the night, we will make special arrangements for you to check in at Campus Safety.

When you are ready to depart campus, you will need to turn in your key at Campus Security. If you do not turn in a key when you check out, you will incur a $150 fine.

Additional Information


Booking and Hall Assignments

You will book on-campus housing when you register for Alumni Weekend. 

We will do our best to place you next to your classmates. People who register together will automatically be placed in a room together as numbers allow. If you are registering for the weekend separately but would like to stay in a room together or if you have any other housing preferences, please contact Caroline Mead at or 503-768-7955 after you submit your registration. 

The fine print (for those with children)

Lewis & Clark College residence halls are not designed for young children. The College is not aware of any condition that is unsafe for young children, but expects you, as parents, to examine your quarters as you would in any other accommodations to make sure that they are safe for your child or children. We very much look forward to you staying with us. If you notice anything in your room or in the residence hall or apartment building that concerns you, please let us know right away. You understand that by accepting accommodations at one of the Lewis & Clark residence halls you are accepting responsibility for your safety and well being and that of your children, and agree to hold Lewis & Clark, its employees, officers, trustees and agents harmless for any injury to person or damage to property you or your child may suffer, unless caused by the negligence or intentional conduct of Lewis & Clark or an employee or agent of Lewis & Clark.
