What hotel options are there in Elon and the surrounding area?

Please visit our accommodations page. Be sure to book your accommodations as soon as possible, as they sell out fast!

When does registration open?

Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2020 registration is not yet open! Stay tuned for more information later in the year.

Why do I need to register online?

Registering online lets your classmates know that you are coming. Everyone who registers will have their name appear on the “Who’s Coming Back” list.

In addition to letting your classmates know, the Office of Alumni Engagement needs to be able to plan accordingly for all the events that take place over Homecoming weekend. Without an accurate count of how many alumni are planning to attend the events, we cannot ensure the experience we hope to deliver.

If I want to cancel my registration, can I get a refund?

We will accept refunds up to a week before Homecoming weekend. To request a refund, please email alumni@elon.edu. Please note that after October 9th, we will no longer be accepting refunds.

What should I do if I've already registered for Homecoming weekend and need to make an alteration?

Please call the Office of Alumni Engagement at (877) 784-3566 to make adjustments to your registration.
