Frequently Asked Questions

Where Do I Go When I Arrive on Campus?
All Reunion guests are asked to check in when they arrive at Reunion Headquarters, located in the Warch Campus Center, on the third (main) level. This includes guests who have campus housing reservations.

The Warch Campus Center is located at 711 E. Boldt Way, Appleton, WI 54911.

Where Can I Park?
Parking will be available in most Lawrence University lots throughout Reunion weekend - see campus map. Please respect the reserved sites for those with disabilities.

Street parking is also available in and around campus. Parking meter requirements are enforced at spaces that are metered, and your car will be ticketed if time has expired during the hours of enforcement. The city of Appleton prohibits parking on city streets from 2–5 a.m. Cars may be ticketed.

Reunion guests staying in Sage Hall may unload luggage in front of Sage but are asked not to block the paved driveway for others. Immediately after your luggage is unloaded, we suggest you park in the Lawrence lot at the corner of East Alton
