Accommodations and Dining

Summer Alumni College Programs

The Third-Year Residential Village on W&L's Campus

For lodging on campus during the summer, we offer spacious, private accommodations in the new Village townhouses and apartments (Liberty Hall Commons). Each Village apartment offers double-bed accommodations. Each single is assigned a private bedroom and bath. Each apartment includes kitchen, laundry, furnished sitting room, convenient parking, and Wi-Fi access. Residents will need to bring towels and linens.

Weekend Seminars

W&L's fall, winter, and spring weekend seminars continue to be a popular feature of the Alumni College, for the programs offer participants a substantive weekend getaway in the beautiful environs of Lexington and Rockbridge County. Participants stay in local inns, with the program, receptions, dinner, and lunch on campus. Programs begin on Friday afternoon and conclude after lunch on Saturday.
