Overnight Housing


All freshmen, including students who will commute in the fall, are required to spend the first night of their June Orientation on campus and will be assigned a room in Skeath Hall that they will share with another freshman. Students should pack bed linens and towels, as well as a fan, since our residence halls are not air-conditioned.

Transfer Students

Upperclass transfer and non-traditional students who need overnight housing will have the option of sharing a room in Skeath Hall or making their own reservation at a local hotel. Please notify the Office of the Dean of First-Year Students before June 1 to request permission to stay off-campus during Orientation or if you do not require housing for Orientation.


During the June Orientation sessions, rooms on campus are also available for parents who need overnight accommodations. Parents who choose to spend the night on campus will be charged an additional $50 fee per parent for lodging (payable at the time the student registers for their June Orientation session.) Checks should be payable to Lycoming College and include the student's name. Checks should be mailed at the time of registration to:

Andrew Kilpatrick
Dean of First-Year Students
Lycoming College
700 College Place, Campus Box 153
Williamsport, PA 17701

Parents should be advised that they will be assigned a private room with a shared bath in an on-campus apartment and will need to pack separately from their students. Linens will be provided for parents; however, parents staying on campus should bring alarm clocks. It should also be noted that there are no televisions or microwaves provided.  Parents do have the option of making their own reservations at one of our local hotels and are encouraged to do so as on-campus housing for parents is limited.
