Registration and Housing Information


Reunion registration packages are all-inclusive—no additional fees are charged for participation in Reunion events once arriving on campus. Packages help cover costs associated with all Reunion activities like meals, beverages, entertainment, and much more. Bowdoin strives to make participation in Reunion as affordable as possible, and the College substantially subsidizes the cost of the Weekend. Children ages 17 and younger can attend Reunion for free!

By registering, all individuals agree to abide by Bowdoin College’s standards of conduct and that the College may take photos and video of them during Reunion events and may publish them in any format or media without additional permission.

On-Campus Housing

On-campus housing is open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of Reunion and available according to registration package. This year, housing is extremely limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. All individuals must be registered for Reunion Weekend for housing assignments to be made.

Housing is provided primarily in residence halls and College Houses. A limited number of apartments are available on a first come, first served basis and can be requested when registering.

Accommodations in all facilities include twin beds and very minimal furnishings. Each attendee registered for on-campus housing will be provided with a set of sheets and towels, a blanket, and a pillow. Attendees are encouraged to bring additional pillows, blankets, or other amenities such as coat hangers, alarm clocks, etc. There are no private bathrooms. The College makes every effort to house classmates and guests of a given Reunion class in the same building.

College policy prohibits pets in campus buildings including all academic, administrative, and student residential buildings. Please note that this does not apply to service animals, which are welcome.

Off-Campus Accommodations

Since housing is extremely limited, we encourage considering off-campus accommodations. The Visitor Resources site lists hotels conveniently located to Bowdoin and many offer special Bowdoin rates.


If cancellation of a Reunion reservation or on-campus room is necessary, individuals will be reimbursed in full for cancellations made prior to Thursday, May 16. Due to planning commitments we make with off-campus vendors and other partners, we regret that we cannot offer refunds for cancellations received after this date.


Bowdoin is committed to making all of its resources available to each one of its community members. While not all areas of campus are fully accessible, we are committed to helping identify and eliminate barriers—including disabilities, impairments, health conditions, or other access needs—so you can enjoy your time back on campus.
