Although somewhat spartan and designed for students, campus housing offers camaraderie and convenience. Fees are per-person: $94/one night, $116/two nights, and $137/three nights. Children under 10 are housed free if in a sleeping bag or portable crib; Yale does not provide cribs.
Campus renovations have dramatically altered suites: most have multiple bedrooms and a common room, and bedrooms are a mix of singles and doubles. Guests will usually share a suite with other attendees; single attendees may share a bedroom, and couples may be assigned to two single bedrooms. Families are kept together in a suite. Bathrooms are communal and their doors cannot be locked. All-gender and single-gender bathrooms will be available for reunion attendees staying in university accommodations, although the bathroom type of your choice may not be on your floor.
Private accommodations cannot be provided except for medical reasons. There are a limited number of accessible rooms and rooms with non-electronic access (for religious observance). Beds are singles and permanent bunk beds are common; upper bunks are not assigned to the Classes of 1952-1977. Rooms have dressers, overhead lighting, desks and chairs and, sometimes, student furniture. Yale provides linens (sheets, blanket, pillow, pillowcase), towels, washcloths, and soap. There are no phones, desk lamps, air conditioners, or fans. All Yale buildings are strictly non-smoking.
Alumni from all classes may also stay in the Baker Hall on Tower Parkway near Payne Whitney Gym. Fees are $153/night per bedroom, with a two-night minimum. Suites consist of two bedrooms with two single beds each, and you may share a suite with other attendees. All suites have a furnished common room, a kitchenette and an all-gender in-suite bathroom; they are air-conditioned and accessible with elevator access to all floors. Yale provides the same amenities (linens, etc.) as in residential college housing.
Families with young children should note that each suite contains four beds, and there is limited floor space to accomodate portable cribs or sleeping bags.
