Dining and Lodging

Registration for Parents and Family Weekend 2018 is now closed.

If you did not have an opportunity to register online before the September 14th deadline, please stop by the registration table in Elrod Commons (see Schedule of Events) when you arrive on campus.

NEW!!!! Parents and Family Weekend 2019 is scheduled for October 4-5, 2019.  Dates beyond 2019 have not yet been finalized, but will be posted on this page as soon as they are set.

Please join us on September 28-29, 2018, for Washington and Lee's 64th 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.


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 2016, over $20,000 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 register or ask a question about Habitat Hotel, contact co-chairs Turner Banwell '19 or Julian Hennig '19 at habitat@mail.wlu.edu.  Additional information and the link to register can also be found on the Rockbridge Habitat website.
