Please review the Thirteen House Visitation Agreement.


Thirteen House is a first-rate accommodation designed to bring Thirteeners and their families back to Colgate. The house will foster interaction among all Thirteeners, provide a permanent center of gravity for returning Thirteen alumni and promote more frequent and open dialogue between students and alumni. Visions of spontaneous visits, reunions with roommates, a hockey weekend, football game, golf, or singing with "the boys" were at the root of Thirteen House's founding. Thirteen House sets a new standard for alumni involvement at Colgate generally and perpetuates the rich Colgate Thirteen tradition.


Guest House Fees

Although Thirteen House is not a business—it is a private home—modest overnight fees defray weekend cleaning and operating costs and help ensure the proper use of the house. Check our room rates for fees and costs. When not rented, the house is cleaned and locked, eagerly awaiting its next guests.
