Guest House Policy

The Huegel Alumni House Annex (Guesthouse) is located at 445 College Avenue and has been furnished with items from the College Collection. There are three open rooms on the first floor, as well as four bedrooms with two shared bathrooms on the second floor. Each bedroom has a telephone, a television and there is also wireless access to the Internet.

The intent of the house is to provide convenient and comfortable short-term lodging for special guests who are on campus for activities such as giving lectures and symposiums or being interviewed for a job. The house is open to Faculty and Professional Staff for college related business purposes, with approval. It is not open to Students, Parents or Alumni. However, consideration may occur for any persons of these groups who are a special guest of the College. All student Clubs, Fraternities and Sororities must obtain approval to use the house through their Club Advisor or Administrative Representative of the College community.

The guesthouse is not available to non-Franklin and Marshall groups without prior approval.

There are no fees associated with the use of the guest bedrooms. No food is available and guests are asked not to prepare any food in the house. Guests are expected to take their meals on campus or with the hosting department. Food is prohibited in the bedrooms. If you are eating in the house, please only do so in the assigned dining areas on the first floor. Water, tea and coffee are available in a common room located on the second floor for guests’ convenience. 

Guest should only stay for as long as the reservation states. A reservation should not last more than 3 nights per stay. The hosts must check with the Director of Campus Services and Property Management before permitting a guest to stay longer than the reservation has been confirmed. Extended periods of stay require prior approval.

Reservations are for the guest only. Guest may have a person stay with them, but the reservation will be made for 1 room only. Cots or cribs are not available. Additional guests rooms may be approved based on availability. A single administrative or academic department may not book more than two (2) rooms per reservation. Special exceptions may occur.

Check-in is at 3:00pm and check-out is at 9:00am. Please be sure to inform your guest of these times. If a guest arrives before check-in time, they should not assume their room is available. Special check-in or check-out times are an option, but must be arranged with the Guest House manager prior to the guests arrival. For the guest privacy, hosts should not enter any of the rooms to “make sure the room is ready” before the scheduled check-in time of their guest arrival.

Hosts are to pick up guest keys from the Auxiliary Services Office at 619 College Avenue. Guest House keys may be picked up Monday-Friday 9:00am-3:00pm. Host must make arrangements with their guest and the Department of Public Safety to have guest pick up keys after normal working hours or weekends.

All feedback of your guest experience should be directed to the Director of Campus Services and Property Management, 717-358-4321. If feedback is shared during the stay, we will do everything possible to adjust and make appropriate changes as required. If provided after the stay is over, this information will be used to create a better experience for our next guests.
