Dome Room Dinners

Dine In The University's Most Iconic Building

Top off your Family Weekend with an unforgettable experience: consider entering the lottery for one of the Dome Room Dinners. In these incredibly popular events, families may dine on Grounds in the University's original library while listening to a lecture from one of our premier faculty members.

There are two Dome Room Dinners hosted during Family Weekend. Due to limited space and popularity, all interested parties are entered in a lottery and selected at random. This year's dinners will be held on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27. Both will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The cost to attend the dinner is $80 per person, regardless of age. Attendees who are selected from the lottery will be notified the week of October 8 via email.


The Lottery

Because of this event's popularity and due to the fact that space is limited to 100 guests, all interested parties are entered into a lottery and selected at random. The deadline to register for the lottery is Friday, October 5.
