    Do I have to pre-register for Homecoming Weekend?

    You will save time and money if you register in advance of your arrival on campus. An early bird registration fee of $10 per household is available from Aug. 5 - Oct. 6, 2019.

    Will onsite registration be available?

    After Oct. 6, a registration fee of $25 per household will apply and there will be a $10 additional fee per person, per event. We do our best to accommodate walk-ins, but cannot guarantee a seat or a meal unless you have registered by Oct. 6.

    Why is there a registration fee?

    The registration fee covers the hidden costs of the weekend including tents, tables, chairs, and staffing. More than 100 Colorado College staff make every effort for all events to be as well planned as possible. To that end, it helps us immensely when you make a good faith effort to register and pay the requested fees.

    I've registered, now what?

    Upon arrival on campus, all alumni and guests should check in at Registration Central in Room 105 of the Charles L. Tutt Library to receive an official Homecoming Weekend name tag, a final schedule with event confirmation, and tickets.*

    Registration Central is open:

    Friday, Oct. 11
    9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
    Saturday, Oct. 12
    9 a.m.–3 p.m.
    *If your first event is on Thursday, please go directly to your event. Check in at registration on Friday. If you arrive on Friday after registration has closed, go directly to your event and check in at registration on Saturday.

    Do I need to purchase tickets to attend athletic events?

    Alumni may attend on-campus athletic events for free with their official Homecoming Weekend name tag. If you would like to attend the hockey game, you have a few options.

Tickets cost $12 per person for seating in sections 202 and 203, right behind the student section. Seating is limited and alumni reunion section tickets must be purchased by Oct. 6. Tickets purchased in the alumni reunion section by Oct. 6, will be available for pick up at Registration Central in Room 105 of the Tutt Library. If you would prefer to sit in another section, or if you miss the Oct. 6 deadline to purchase tickets in the alumni reunion section, single game reserved seating tickets can be purchased directly from the World Arena or by going online at www.cctigers.com. Parking at the World Arena is $10. All hockey tickets are non-refundable.
