A limited number of university residence hall rooms will be available for families and guests on Thursday night (May 17) and Friday night (May 18). Rooms are not available on Saturday night. Lodging rates of $60 per night (single occupancy) and $80 per night (double occupancy) plus 7.25 percent tax include two single beds with sheets, pillow, pillowcase, blanket, towel, washcloth, and soap.
To reserve residence hall rooms, please contact the Events and Scheduling Office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Space is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so please make your reservations promptly. We will not be able to give refunds for reservations that are canceled after May 11, 2018.
All graduates must be moved out of their residence halls by 7 p.m. on the day of Commencement.
Please note: There is another sizeable, albeit quite different, event scheduled during the same weekend in Central Ohio. For the last several years, a three-day rock festival, Rock on the Range, has been held in mid-May at the Columbus Crew’s home soccer field, MAPFRE Stadium, and the Friday and Saturday dates in 2018 coincide with Denison’s Commencement Weekend. The festival attracts large numbers of visitors from out of town each spring, and local lodging is significantly affected. If you are planning to stay in Columbus-area accommodations for Commencement Weekend 2018, we encourage you to make your reservations as early as possible.
