If I request on-campus housing, which residence hall will I live in?

The Douthat Commons and Crever Hall are the two residence halls being used for alumni weekend.

What is GOLD and to whom does it apply?

GOLD is an acronym for "graduates of the last decade."  We recognize that Lycoming alumni who have recently graduated are working hard to establish themselves.  To make it possible for them to engage more often with their alma mater, the cost to attend many events will be lower for this group.  GOLD applies to alumni who graduated in 2008 or after. 

Can I choose my roommate?

Certainly! If you would like to have a roommate, please indicate your preference on your registration form. Most rooms have two twin beds. We have limited triples, available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to stay in a triple, please call Amy (Dowling) Reyes at 570.321.4134.

What if I don't have a roommate? Will one be randomly assigned to me?

No way! If you do not have a preferred roommate, you will be assigned to a single room.

Can I choose my suitemate(s)?

If you have a preferred suitemate, you will indicate your preference on your registration form. Although preferred suitemates are not guaranteed, we promise to try our best to accommodate all requests!

Will I need to bring my own linens?

Each person choosing the room and board option receives a linen bundle containing a fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillowcase, thermal blanket, bath towel, hand towel and washcloth.  You must bring your own pillow. Anything else you’d like to bring is at your option but please keep in mind that all linens are very basic.  You are welcome to bring any linens that will make you feel more comfortable. It is strongly recommended that you bring a heavy blanket, as late May in Williamsport can be unseasonably cold!

How will I access the residence halls?

Upon check in, you will receive a key to your room and an Alumni & Reunion Weekend ID that will give you proxy access to your residence hall.

Do I need to carry my ID with me throughout the weekend?

We strongly encourage you to carry your ID with you, as you will need it to access the residence halls.
