Dormitory rooms in Old East will be available. Built in 1793, Old East is the oldest building on campus and was placed on the Historic Register in 1965. Renovations in 2009 include an elevator and AC!  There are advantages to staying at Old East: it is on campus and less expensive than a hotel, but please realize that it is a dormitory.  Rooms include a bed, a desk, a dresser, and a trash can.  There are shared (key-accessible) bathrooms and a shared kitchenette with microwave and fridge on each hall.

More information and registration for a room in Old East will be available here in March.  When you register, please let us know your flight plans as we cannot provide 24/7 check-in, though we will do what we can to work with your travel schedule.
