Where do I check in?
Due to upgrades to campus facilities, the Welcome Center has moved in 2015!

Upon your arrival to Rose Hill, please first stop at the housing desk, located in front of O'Hare Residence Hall, if you have reserved housing. Once you've secured your room keys, hop a golf cart or stroll across campus to the Welcome Center in Bepler Commons, Faber Hall. There you will receive a personalized folder with your tickets, event update information, and a special Jubilee souvenir, as well have the option to register for tours or pre-order your class photo!

The Welcome Center will be open from 2 - 8 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. on Saturday. 

Where do I get keys to my room?
If you have chosen to stay on campus for the weekend, your housing reservation and keys will be available at the housing desk located in front of O'Hare Residence Hall, just steps away from the parking garage. Please note that the housing desk is separate from the Welcome Center this year!

What should I bring?
On-campus housing provides linens, a blanket, a pillow, and towels. We strongly recommend that you bring hangers, alarm clocks, and all personal hygiene items. In addition, in case of inclement weather, we would suggest you bring extra blankets for warmth. On-campus rooms also do not have telephones.

Can I room with a classmate?
We will do our best to honor all roommate requests and keep classes housed together. However, alumni who do not register before the deadline cannot be guaranteed housing and might not be placed with their class.

Will there be housing available for children?
Children under the age of 12 are not charged for accommodations but must be registered. If preferred, children 13-17 may be housed in an adjacent room if needed. Please keep in mind the bare-bones nature of residence halls if you are bringing younger children and plan accordingly. We do not have any cribs or playpens available on campus.

How do I get to campus?
Directions to campus can be found at fordham.edu/directions.

Where can I park?
Primary Jubilee parking is in the Fordham Parking Garage, free of charge. Ram Van shuttles will run continuously around campus throughout the weekend. During Welcome Center hours, student staff will be available to assist in transporting luggage between the parking lot and the Welcome center, as well as to your assigned residence hall. There is no parking on campus walkways or roads.

What transportation is available on campus?
Ram Vans will run golf carts throughout the weekend on a specific route to help transport guests and their luggage as well as aid any of our alumni and their guests who may need special assistance. Please note that Ram Vans are unable to supply car seats for children or infants. Ram Vans will not make trips between Rose Hill and Lincoln Center during Jubilee Weekend.

Where do I go if I need assistance?
Throughout Jubilee weekend, there will be knowledgeable Jubilee staff that can assist you in whatever inquiries you may have. All Jubilee staff will be easily identifiable by their Jubilee staff T-shirt and smile! There is also an information desk located in the Welcome Center in Bepler Commons, Faber Hall.
