What you can do on campus

You may have graduated, but you're still part of Carleton. Here are a few of the privileges available to our alumni.


Visiting Northfield? Reserve an affordable room at the Alumni Guest House (on a space available basis).


You're invited (and encouraged) to attend Carleton convocations, athletic competitions, lectures, and other public events.

Library Privileges

Alumni are welcome to use the Gould Library, and in some cases check out materials.


Alumni may work out at the recreation center, swim in the West Gym pool, use the track and tennis courts when not in use by a class or team, and of course run, walk, ski, or bike in the Arb.


You're welcome to join us for any Goodsell Observatory Open House, held the first Friday of each month (unless it's too cloudy).


Carleton alumni may rent the College's wedding venues at a reduced rate, including the Skinner Memorial Chapel, Great Hall, Sayles Great Space, and the Arb's Monument Hill. Carleton weddings may be scheduled for summer or winter break only, due to the heavy use of these spaces during the academic year. Learn more here.
