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 the New Residence Hall for Friday and Saturday nights (21+ only). All guests must check out of the New Residence Hall by 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 2nd. 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 on Saturday and linens (sheets, light blanket, pillow, face and bath towels) are included in the cost of the room. Each apartment features a full kitchen, living room, two double-occupancy bedrooms and two bathrooms. Plan to bring your own snacks, toiletries, alarm clock, clothes hangers and a 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 the New Residence Hall is 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 are unable to accommodate guests under the age of 21 in the New Residence Hall.

 

Can I bring alcohol into the New Residence Hall?

Alcohol in reasonable amounts may be brought in.
