We regret that we are unable to guarantee single room requests. If you are attending Reunion by yourself, we encourage coordinating with friends in advance to ensure your roommate of choice. If you require a single room, please indicate that in the special housing notes. If you require a room with a private bathroom, we strongly recommend you make reservations at one of the Hudson Valley’s area hotels.

Please Note: Alumnae House is reserved for the 70th and 75th Reunion Classes.

Also, the College performs routine maintenance (in rotation) and also houses more than 200 students during the summer months. As such, some residence halls will be “offline” every year (and unavailable for lodging or entering).
