Area Accommodations for Commencement

Several area hotels offer special rates for guests attending Loomis Chaffee Commencement. Check the Commencement accommodations page for details and links to make reservations through Loomis Chaffee room blocks. Please note the cut-off dates for reserving rooms at discounted rates.

Professional Photography Opportunities

During the ceremony, photographs will be taken of each graduate receiving his or her diploma from the Head of School. Review information from Island Photo. A panoramic shot of the class will be taken as well by Panfoto.
