Housing On Campus: Residence Halls

Class years are assigned to residence halls on the basis of the number of classmates expected at reunion. Please register before the May 20 deadline to ensure your rooming preferences. If you register late, we cannot guarantee a room with your class. DORM CHECKOUT: 12:00 p.m., Sunday, June 5

Remember that not all residence halls are air-conditioned and there are communal bathrooms. Spouses and children are asked to share bathrooms with alumnae. No triple rooms are available. Hollins provides necessary bed linen, light blankets, and towels. You may want to bring an extra blanket, extra pillow, or a fan: when packing, think camp.

Pet Policy: Hollins University policy does not allow pets to live in dorms on campus. However, service animals are an exception to this policy. Please let Alumnae Relations know if you will be bringing a service animal, so that we can be sure to accommodate you.

Important Reunion weekend information

Children / Babysitting

Children are welcome participants at reunion. Please bring your own cribs, sleeping bags, and strollers. Indicate the number and ages of all children on the registration form. Alumnae interested in babysitting services during the reunion weekend for children ages 3 and up should contact Alumnae Relations for more information by May 20: reunion@hollins.edu.

Choir

You are invited to sing with the Alumnae Choir at the Sunday morning memorial service. All are welcome. Please indicate your interest on your registration form.

Clothing

Activities during reunion are casual and informal attire is appropriate. However, Saturday night’s dinner on Front Quad is dressier. You may wish to bring a sweater for outdoor meals.

Fees

Receive an early bird discount by registering by May 20, 2016. Reunion fees help defray the cost of a great event and cover such things as: catering, rental of tables, chairs, and linens; flowers; entertainment; special speakers; staffing; class photos; and hospitality rooms. The Parade of Classes and the Alumnae Celebration are complimentary and open to everyone. The à la carte registration fee will be waived for alumnae and non-alumnae guests who register for one meal only. All registrations received after the May 20 early brid deadline will be charged a $25 fee. Refund requests, less a $25 processing fee, may be made if your reservation is cancelled prior to May 20, 2016. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be made after May 20, 2016, as arrangements for your attendance have already been made by the Alumnae Relations office. Registration closes after May 27 – after May 27 you must register in person at check-in.

Hospitality Rooms

Each class will have a hospitality room with a white board. you are encouraged to bring mementos to decorate creatively. An initial supply of cups, ice, soft drinks, and mixers will be provided. If you would like to help ensure the quality of your class’s hospitality room experience by volunteering for your reunion committee, please contact your class reunion chair.

Meals

A ticket for all registered meals will be included in your registration packet; remember to bring your ticket with you to each meal. Meals are provided by the Hollins food service staff in Hollins facilities and are informal, with a dressier event on Saturday evening on Front Quad. If you have dietary restrictions, please indicate your needs on your registration form. If you are planning to register at check-in and have special dietary needs, please contact the Alumnae Relations office by May 20 to ensure accommodation: reunion@hollins.edu
