Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Stanford Reunion Homecoming postponed?

The Stanford Alumni Association has made the difficult decision to postpone Reunion Homecoming 2020 to the fall of 2021 due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation. This decision is based on guidance from the university, consideration for public health, and concern for alumni well-being. Our plan is to offer an engaging reunion experience in the fall of 2021 when large gatherings are permitted.

 

Are virtual events planned so I can reconnect with my class?

As much as we would love to be able to recreate Reunion Homecoming virtually, we know even the most inspired virtual programming could never replace the energy and excitement of being on campus with your classmates, friends and family. While we will not offer a virtual reunion event, our plan is to connect classes together online in 2020. We will continue to share updates as these online offerings come together. We appreciate your patience and support as we develop these plans to acknowledge your Stanford milestone.

 

How do I receive a refund on my hotel reservations made on the reunion website?

If you have made hotel reservations on reunion.stanford.edu through our partner HBC Event Services, your reservations will be automatically canceled and you will be issued a full refund.

If you have questions or would like to rebook your reservations please contact HBC at (505) 346-0522 or email support@hbceventservices.com.
