Booking a hotel near campus

Finding a hotel is one of the first things to do as you plan a campus visit. Some towns fill up completely when parents, alumni, and students pour in for special events. Book a hotel room as far in advance as possible when attending:

  • Orientation
  • Move-in
  • Family Weekend
  • Homecoming
  • Move-out and Graduation or Commencement

For Graduation/Commencement, confirm a hotel room at least 4 months ahead of time — for some universities you’ll need to start even earlier — and be sure to share this recommendation with extended family and friends who also plan to attend. Don’t forget to ask if the hotel offers a discount for your student’s school!
