Reservations for Campus Events

Plan ahead

Football season and graduation are some of the most exciting times on the Indiana University Bloomington campus—and some of the busiest times at the Biddle Hotel. Because of the high demand for rooms during those times, we have special reservations procedures for stays during home football game weekends and spring Commencement weekend.

Home football game weekends

Reservation requests for stays during the September 14 (vs. Ohio State), September 21 (vs. Connecticut; Parents’ Weekend), and October 12 (vs. Rutgers; Homecoming) football game weekends are to be made via an online request form. The form will be active starting February 4, 2019 at
8 am (EDT). Two rooms may be requested per guest. 

Reservation requests will be taken until the dates are sold out. You will be notified within five days of your request if we are able to accommodate your request. A deposit equal to your full stay will be charged at the time of notification.

Reservations for stays on the other home football game weekends can be made online or over the phone starting Monday, February 4, 2019 at 8 am (EDT). A deposit equal to your full stay will be charged at the time of reservation using the credit card used to make the reservation.

Reservation policies for all football weekends:

  • A minimum stay of two nights is required.
  • A deposit equal to the room rate and applicable taxes for your entire stay is due at the time you make your reservation.
  • You may cancel up to 5 days prior to the first day of your stay and receive a full refund of your deposit. If you cancel fewer than 5 days prior, you forfeit your deposit.
  • Any changes or cancellations must be sent in writing to imuhotel@indiana.edu
