On Campus Lodging and Meals

Dear Family, Friends & Guests of the Ithaca College Class of 2015,

Congratulations to both you and the Ithaca College student in your life! Commencement is a time of great pride and joy, and we look forward to sharing that experience with you. Once again this year, Ithaca College is pleased to offer on-campus housing and meals during our May 2015 Commencement weekend to family, friends, and guests of our graduating students. If you have an interest in on-campus housing, please read all of the information below and then complete the commencement housing form.

Commencement Housing Reservations:  On-campus accommodations for Commencement weekend are available. We offer single rooms at $150 and double rooms at $170 for a two-night stay, which includes tax.  Note that the reservation includes the nights of Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17.  If you need accommodations for Friday, May 15, please contact commencementhousing@ithaca.edu.  Single night rates are not available.  All guests in Commencement housing on campus will receive one complimentary ticket for breakfast in the Campus Center Dining Hall on Sunday, May 17, 2015.  In the section provided on the form, please indicate any special medical needs or disabilities we should consider in making your housing assignments. Please be sure to indicate gender(s) of person(s) with needs. When placing guests in their housing assignments, we make every attempt to house all indicated groups together.

Reservations will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. These single and double rooms are located in our on-campus residence halls, and housing is limited. As a result, we ask that you reserve only those spaces you will definitely need.

Each occupant is provided with a twin-size, extra-long bed with sheets, towels, pillow, and blanket. Any other amenities or toiletries you may need will be your responsibility to bring. All of our residence halls are equipped with community bathrooms. Separate male and female bathrooms are designated on alternate wings of each floor, or by floor. All residence halls are non-smoking environments. Emerson Hall and college apartments are not available as housing options.

Reservations, with payment, are due by May 1, 2015. No reservations will be accepted, nor will any refunds be given, following the May 2, 2015 due date. Confirmation e-mails will be sent to the e-mail address you indicate by May 11, 2015. Information about your specific room assignment(s) will not be available to you until check-in day. Should your plans change after reservations are made, we ask that you e-mail us.
