The Omni Richmond Hotel serves as Reunion headquarters. Reserve your room online or by calling (804) 344-7000. When making your reservation, identify yourself as an MCV Campus Reunion attendee to receive the special rate of $183 per night. We encourage you to book early, as there is a NASCAR race the same weekend.

Other hotels are nearby, but they do not offer group rates or free Reunion transportation. Please contact the hotels directly for the best available rates.

I am interested in booking a suite at the Omni so I can host some of my classmates.
Please contact Lauren Leavy, senior coordinator of alumni engagement events, VCU Alumni, at (804) 628-2249 or leleavy@vcu.edu. Suites are on hold should anyone from our group wish to reserve them but they must be reserved through the VCU Office of Alumni Relations.

Valet parking is available at the Omni for $25 per day with unlimited in and out privileges. Parking for those attending events on campus is available on Friday, April 17, in the 8th Street Parking Deck and on Saturday, April 18, in the N Deck. Overnight parking is not available on campus.

Is any transportation provided?
Yes, a Reunion shuttle bus runs throughout the weekend beginning at 11 a.m. April 17. The bus departs from the Omni Richmond Hotel and loops through campus approximately every 20 minutes. There are numerous stops on the medical campus for drop off and pick up. Additional transportation will also be provided for specific class parties and Reunion events. Refer to the Reunion registration brochure to find out if transportation is being provided to your event or check at Reunion headquarters.

What if I have special dietary needs? Who should I contact to make arrangements for my meals?
Please contact the Reunion hotline at (804) 628-8015 and indicate which events you will be attending. You will be put in contact with the appropriate individual who is responsible for the event menus.

Are there events for children? 
Since there are so few people who bring their children to Reunion, we have not planned any special events or activities for them. Most events are suited for adults only. The MCV Campus Block Party can be enjoyed by all ages. If you have suggestions on how Reunion can be more family friendly, please email Ashley Burton, director of alumni reunion and recognition programs, or Lauren Leavy, senior coordinator of alumni engagement events.

My spouse does not plan to attend my class party with me but is planning to come for the weekend. What is available for him/her to do while I am away?
There are a multitude of activities and sights to see in Richmond, including canal cruises, Segway tours, brewery tours and more (check out everything RVA has to offer!).

How can I make a class gift?
Reunion class pledges and gifts can be made online.

How do I get information about additional questions?
