Housing in the Colleges and on Old Campus

For our class, there will be no cost for campus housing which, although somewhat spartan and designed for students, offers camaraderie and convenience.  

Current housing configurations are dramatically different from the suites you may remember from your student days.  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 guaranteed 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 1954-1979. 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.
