Parent’s Weekend Open House – Sat. Nov. 6

We have made one significant change to the Open House plan this year.  We will have the start/end point for our buses be the Alderman Library Bus Stop.  In the past we had 2 separate routes leaving from the Alderman and McCormick Road bus stops.  Some of the feedback we received was that it was difficult for some families to make time to participate because it required that people come back to the First Year Areas to get on the buses when everything else for the weekend was scheduled on the center of Grounds.  Having one stop will mean that everyone can ride the same buses and not worry about switching routes at some point.

The staff members on the bus and at our tent at the bus stop can answer any questions you have about the different housing options and the application process and timeline.  In addition to these staff members, the Accommodations Office will also be open from 12:00 noon – 3:00 p.m.  The Accommodations Office of the Housing Division is in Page House of the McCormick Road Area.  The entrance is in the center of the back of the building.  We hope that you will stop in to ask any questions you have even if you don’t have time to participate in the Open House.

The weather forecast is for cool weather (I’m from Wisconsin, so “cold” for me means below freezing).  I hope that we will be surprised with a warm, sunny day.


We hope you'll find helpful information on the Housing application and assignment process. Send us questions at and we'll answer them here.
