On-Campus Housing

Commencement for the Class of 2018 is scheduled for Sunday, May 20 Because Colgate is some distance from major hotels, we offer on-campus housing for guests of graduating seniors from Friday, May 18 through Monday, May 21.  The family of each senior may reserve up to four (4) beds in campus residence halls.  (Please note: University apartments are not used.)  Single, double, triple and quad rooms are available for $40.00 per person, per night.  This price includes linens and towels.

To make reservations, please complete Graduation Housing Form and return it with full payment by Friday, April 27 to:  Graduation Housing, Office of Residential Life, 13 Oak Drive, Hamilton, NY 13346. Cancellation requests, for full refunds, must be received before Friday, May 4, 2018

Requests for room assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis so we encourage you to be timely in returning your reservation form.  Due to limited space on campus, preferences for particular halls, facilities, and types of rooms are not guaranteed.  Accommodations for people with medical or special needs can be made, however such spaces are limited.  Please be sure to list any specific requirements that need special attention on the enclosed housing form. 

 A notice will be mailed to you the first week of May to confirm your reservations and give information regarding check-in.  Students requiring more than the allotted four spaces are encouraged to use the spaces of classmates not using campus housing for their families.

There is not a formal check in or out process for this.  Your graduating senior will be responsible for picking up your room keys prior to your arrival.  Please make arrangements with your son/daughter to insure you received your keys.  Keys will not be distributed after 4pm on Friday, May 18.     

If you need assistance in making your housing arrangements please contact Tracy E. Piatti at the Office of Residential Life (315) 228-7372.
