2. HOUSING AT OUR CAMPUS HEADQUARTERSCarl Becker House

Housing FAQsWhat’s included in the room fee?The university provides bath towels, bed linens, and a daily towel exchange. You’ll want to bring your own hair dryer and iron.

When is check in/check out?Check-in begins Thursday at noon and all classmates must check out by noon Sunday.

Can I smoke in the residence halls or bring my pet?No, you may not smoke, and only service animals are welcome.

Can I get a room near my friends?The Class of ‘74 will be at Carl Becker House. Because undergraduate residences are designed for single students, only twin-size beds are available. A single room has one twin bed, and a double room has two twin beds. The dorm is comprised of mostly singles, with a limited amount of double rooms.If you have special housing needs or if you wish to room near or with a specific party or parties, please note this when completing the housing section of your Reunion registration. The person you request on your housing registration must also request you. We will try our best to accommodate all requests for housing. We will give priority to those members of the Class of ‘74 in your group who are staying for a minimum of two nights in our dorms. This will be done on a first come, first served basis. Please note that only members of your group who register by May 10th can be considered for pre-assigned rooms.

I have special medical or mobility needs—is it practical for me to stay in the residence halls?Yes! To communicate specific medical or mobility needs, please contact your registration chair by May 24.

Does our class have a block of rooms at a hotel?Prefer to stay in a local hotel room? A limited number of rooms has been blocked for Alumni returning to Ithaca.
