Dining and Lodging

Please join us on September 30-October 2, 2016, for Washington and Lee's 62nd 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.

PLEASE NOTE:  Parents & Family Weekend 2017 is scheduled for October 6-8, 2017.  Dates beyond 2017 have not yet been set.  They will be posted to this website as soon as they are finalized.

Registration for Parents and Family Weekend 2016 is now closed.  Parents and families who have not pre-registered may register in person by stopping by the registration tables in the Elrod Commons Living Room.  (See Schedule of Events for registration hours.)


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.  Faculty and staff open their homes to families for the weekend and families make a donation to the local Habitat chapter in exchange. During Parents and Family Weekend 2015, over $19,000 was raised for Habitat for Humanity.  Our students hope to match or even exceed that amount this fall.  The funds raised will be used for the construction of another Habitat House in Lexington. To make a reservation or ask a question about Habitat Hotel, contact Alexandra Lee '17 (leea17@mail.wlu.eduand  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.
