Alumni Family Weekend Lodging

Important Announcement regarding Alumni Family Weekend

Due to the ongoing health crisis surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Arcadia has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our annual Alumni Family Weekend scheduled for May 1 & 2, 2020. 

On March 30, Governor Wolf extended the stay-at-home order already in place, closing all Pennsylvania schools and businesses. Given the current outlook and unpredictability at this time, we cannot adequately plan for the Alumni Family Weekend celebration you deserve, and more importantly, we cannot jeopardize your health and well-being and that of our community. 

Please know that the University is exploring every alternative opportunity to honor our reunion classes once this threat is behind us. 

See below for answers to frequently asked questions. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available. Please contact with any additional questions or concerns. To stay up-to-date on Arcadia’s COVID-19 response, please visit
