Dining and Lodging

Please join us on October 2-4, 2015, for Washington and Lee's 61st annual Parents & Family Weekend celebration when we honor the parents and families of our students. The weekend will combine informational and recreational activities, giving parents the opportunity to meet with members of the faculty, review campus life, and participate in social events.

A tentative schedule of events will be posted in early to mid-August. In the meantime, feel free to review the 2014 Schedule. Although there will be changes, the schedule is similar year-to-year and will provide a general idea of the types of events that are held and the event times.


Out-of-town guests are requested to make their own reservations. Parents of First-Year students are urged to make hotel reservations as soon as possible. Lodging Options in Lexington.

Many parents take advantage of Habitat Hotel, a fund-raising effort by our student Habitat for Humanity Chapter which expects to raise approximately $5,000 this fall for the construction of a Habitat House in Lexington. Faculty and staff open their homes to families for the weekend and families make a donation to the local Habitat chapter in exchange. To make a reservation or ask a question about Habitat Hotel, contact Alexandra Lee '17 (leea17@mail.wlu.edu) or Caroline Sanders '17 (sandersc17@mail.wlu.edu).

Payments for rooms reserved through Habitat Hotel made may be made by sending a check to: "Habitat for Humanity" at 30 East Preston Street, Lexington, Virginia 24450. To pay by credit card, please call the Habitat for Humanity office at (540) 463-3770.
