Housing Questions

What are my options for overnight accommodations?

If you wish to stay overnight on campus during Alumni Weekend, double-occupancy rooms are available in St. Ann’s Hall for Friday and Saturday nights. All guests must check out of St. Ann’s Hall by 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 3rd. No Exceptions.

If you are arriving prior to Friday night or plan to stay in Boston longer than two nights, please refer to the list of nearby hotels offering a group rate for Emmanuel College alumni and make your reservation before the hotel’s cut-off date. Please be aware that other area colleges have reunions that weekend and hotel rooms may become booked early.


What amenities are included with on-campus accommodations?

Continental breakfast and linens (sheets, light blanket, pillow, face and bath towels) are included in the cost of the room. Rooms are double occupancy with shared bathroom facilities. Plan to bring your own toiletries, alarm clock, clothes hangers and an extra blanket or firm pillow if you choose. Please note that irons, ironing boards, microwaves, televisions, and hair dryers are not available.

New England weather in June can be unpredictable, and St. Ann Residence Hall is not air conditioned. Depending on the forecast, either a warm blanket or a room fan (or both!) may make your stay more comfortable.


How are residence hall rooms assigned?

Roommate requests are encouraged and may be submitted when you register. Those who do not indicate a roommate preference for the weekend will be matched with someone, generally from the same class year. Please indicate on your registration form if you require a handicap accessible room.


Are guests or children permitted in the dorms?

We regret that we are unable to accommodate guests under the age of 21 in St. Ann’s Hall.
