Future UVA Graduations

2020 | May 15-17     2021 | May 14-16     2022 | May TBD

 

​Interested in lodging for upcoming UVA graduations? We handle graduation weekend differently than other weekends. Since we offer private homes, most owners will not offer the home until the present graduation has been completed and some wait until fall to let us know that their home will be available. While we do not begin making future graduation reservations until the May of the year before, we do maintain a waiting list to notify you as soon as a home that fits your needs becomes available.  Adding yourself to the waiting list is not an obligation to reserve a home if there is not a good fit for your family's needs.

Cancellation Policy

Once you have selected the property and it is reserved for you, the initial deposit of 50% is due by credit card at the time of making the reservation.  This deposit is non-refundable. The final payment is payable by check to Guesthouses and is due January 15, 2019. All reservations made after January 15th require the payment in full at the time of booking. All payments are non-refundable.  A refund will only be considered if we are able to rebook the property and if the cancellation is made prior to January 15, 2019. No adjustments can be made to rates due to a reduction in the number of guests, the number of bedrooms booked, or to the number of nights needed. 

Graduation Parties & Small Gatherings

If you reserve a house and are considering inviting friends/family for a small party, you must contact your host and ask his/her permission to do so and to set a guest limit.  Some hosts will be glad to work with you.  It is required that you get permission beforehand if you are entertaining any more than the number of guests that you have booked for your accommodation (and the graduate).  Hosts may require a damage deposit and a fee for use of the property for the event.   Without the owner’s permission, such an event is considered to be trespassing on the owner’s property.
