Princeton Class of 1990 25th Reunion Dormitory Housing Information
Dormitory Housing Options
The university has allocated
a set number of on campus beds to our class among various locations (with
varying bed configurations), and we have secured additional beds at the
Princeton Theological Seminary (all single-bedded rooms) and at Westminster
Choir College (all double-bedded rooms).
We will assign beds in the
order in which we receive fully pre-paid registrations, based on the location
selected during the registration process.
On Campus Dormitory Rooms ($125 per Bed) - SOLD OUT
These rooms are located
at or near our 25th reunion site (Whitman College). While some rooms will be at Whitman, others
will be located in dorms in other parts of campus. Room configurations include singles, doubles,
triples and quads (all beds will be filled, so all multi-bedded rooms will be
shared rooms). Most dorms do not have
Air Conditioning (Whitman dorms do have A/C), and virtually all rooms share communal bathrooms (usually a short walk from
The university allocates the rooms to our class (we do not get to pick
them). There will be students staying in
the dorms (graduating seniors, and students remaining on campus for
Reunion-related activities) - the dorms are not reserved exclusively for
alums. Parking is available in
University lots on a space available basis.
Theological Seminary Rooms ($175 per Bed)-SOLD OUT
These rooms are located less than a half mile West of
Whitman College (the PTS campus is just West of Alexander Street) and are a
less noisy option than on campus housing.
All rooms are singles and are Air Conditioned. Communal bathrooms. There is free parking (but parking permits
must be coordinated in advance).
Choir College Rooms ($150 per Bed) - AVAILABLE
These rooms are located one mile northeast of Whitman
College (the WCC campus is located at 101 Walnut Lane, about 4 blocks north of
Hoagie Haven's location on Nassau Street) and are a less noisy option than on-campus housing. All rooms are doubles (all
beds will be filled), and they are not air-conditioned. Communal bathrooms. There is ample off street parking.
Note: All rooms are non-smoking. Pets are not allowed. Every effort will be made to accommodate
special needs that are noted during the registration process (e.g., ADA room,
cost for dormitory housing depends on the location (as noted above) - but, for
each location, it is a flat fee, per bed (not per room), for the entire 3-nights
of Reunions weekend regardless of the length of your stay. This cost includes basic linens (1 set of
twin sheets, blanket, pillow and towel).
You must pre-pay for your bed(s) at the time of registration. You will be charged per bed regardless of length of stay.
Deposits for Keys
& Linens (Bring 2 Separate Checks)
check-in, you will be required to leave two separate checks to cover the
refundable key and linen deposits - a $50 deposit for each key and a separate
$50 deposit for each set of linens (a
separate check is required per type of deposit - please bring two blank checks
). These deposits are
in addition to the bed charge. Checks
will be cashed only if keys ($50 per key) and/or linens ($50 per set) are not
returned. Upon return of keys and linens
at check-out, your respective deposit checks will be returned to you.
early! - First Come, First Served
While we will
make every effort to house as many classmates as possible, dormitory housing is
limited and CANNOT be guaranteed. All dormitory housing will be allocated
on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the order in which we receive
pre-paid registrations). The
best advice to secure dormitory housing is to register and pay as soon as
possible - be sure to sign up online at www.princeton90.com, as soon as possible! Please note that it is optional to purchase
dormitory housing for Reunions, but you
must register for Reunions in order to sign up for dormitory housing
While there are
opportunities to room with classmates, each Class of '90 member (including
married classmates) must register individually for dormitory housing as part of
the general Reunions registration process (see below for more detailed
information on rooming with classmates).
When our class allotment of dormitory housing
is filled, we will have a housing wait list.
You will automatically be placed on this wait list if you registered for
dormitory housing after all the beds are taken (once all of the beds have been
claimed, we will update the housing registration information to indicate that
bed requests are being taken on a wait list basis only, but don't assume you
have automatically made the cut off before that message is posted). We will notify you if you are on the wait
list, and will notify you if a bed becomes available. In the interim, we encourage you to find
other accommodations (please refer to the "Hotel Accommodations
' information). Classmates who prefer to not be on the wait
list will be provided with a full refund; classmates who are on the wait list
and are not ultimately assigned a bed will be provided with a full refund as
promptly as possible after Reunions weekend occurs (if you paid by check, we
will destroy the check; if you paid with a credit card, we will issue a refund
to your card).
If you would like to room
with a particular classmate, please fill in the name of your desired roommate(s)
in the appropriate space on the housing registration form. We will do our best to accommodate your roommate
request(s), but cannot promise that we will be able to honor all of them. Make sure you and your friends register early
and put down the same preferences. You
will be provided with housing assignments upon arriving on campus for Reunions
Please note that,
regardless of where your housing is, if you are assigned one bed in a
multi-bedded room we will assign someone to the other bed(s). We need to fill all open beds to accommodate
all of the requests that we anticipate.
All dormitory housing comes
with basic linens (1 set of twin sheets,
blanket, pillow and towel). We recommend
that you bring blankets, pillows and any other comfort items from home. Toiletries
are not provided.
If you plan to stay on campus with children, we
encourage you to plan for them to share a room with you or an older
sibling. We anticipate a tremendous
demand for dormitory beds and we want to accommodate as many classmates as we
possibly can. We are asking all families
to use space efficiently so that we can make the most of our scarce housing
resources. There is no charge for
children staying in a room with you on an air mattress or cot that you bring
Every effort will be made to accommodate special
needs that are noted during the registration process (e.g., ADA room,
Orthodox/observant, etc.). Once you have
secured your dormitory housing through the registration process, you can also
any special needs requests.
Refunds for guaranteed housing registrations will
only be given under the following conditions: Cancellation notification is made
via time-stamped email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and such notification is made on or before February
(for 100% refund). After February 27, 2015, NO housing refunds
will be made
- but this does not preclude you from finding a classmate
who is willing to take over your pre-paid housing registration (although you
would need to coordinate reimbursement arrangements between yourselves; and the
classmate who originally registered for housing will need to notify email@example.com
changed registration name so the reservation will be logged under the correct
This refund deadline does
not apply to:
- wait-listed registrations (see "Housing Waitlist" for the
refund policy for waitlisted registrations) or;
- hotel reservations that have
been made separately from Reunions registration (each hotel has its own
specific cancellation policy).
