Commencement Housing for Families

When will the families receive information about housing on campus during the Commencement Weekend? The information will be mailed before Thanksgiving break. We can make reservations after the mailing and we encourage all to file electronically. 

Can I make reservations on-line and use my credit card? Yes, after the information is sent.

What if I need special accommodations for members of my family? Please note your special needs on the housing form. We do our best to meet all requests, but housing is limited.
