Additional Program Information

Travel Programs

The programs are designed to provide enriching educational travel opportunities for W&L alumni, parents, and friends. All participants should enjoy traveling as part of a group and, as such, can anticipate the many advantages of group travel along with occasional delays or minor mishaps that occur with individual and group travel alike. The Lifelong Learning staff works closely with carefully vetted tour operators to minimize unexpected inconveniences. Neither Washington and Lee University nor the Office of Lifelong Learning will be held liable for any failure by tour operators to uphold contracted services or to meet the expectations of our travelers.

Dates, schedules, program details, and costs (based on information available and in force by January 1, 2024) are subject to change and revision. Please note that all tour prices are per person based on double occupancy unless otherwise noted. Single occupancy, when available, is limited and typically will be assessed a supplemental fee.

Deposits are requested at the time of tour reservation and indicate your acceptance of the final terms of the tour package. Balance of payment is due upon receipt of the final invoice. Payment due dates, cancellation, and refund policies are set by individual tour operators. Refer to the tour brochure terms and conditions for specific information about each tour. Refunds are not available for unused meals, accommodations, or other included features. Travel insurance is strongly recommended for all travelers, and trip cancelation insurance should be considered.

Campus Programs

On-campus program fees typically include instructional costs, meals, and program materials. Lodging is not included in the program fee. We encourage seminar and virtual book club participants to purchase their books from local book sellers or borrow from a local library.

For summer programs, W&L has reserved a limited number of on-campus townhouses and apartments located in the Village. These accommodations provide semi-private lodging, often with shared bathrooms, kitchens, laundry facilities, and sitting rooms. All on-campus lodging is equipped with Wi-Fi and is a short walk to free parking. These accommodations are a 10-15 minute walk to main campus, where most programming will occur. Residents must provide their own linens and towels. Residence hall space is not available during the academic year.

For information about off-campus lodging options, please consult the Visitor Center of Lexington.

On-campus programs include a light breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the hours of the program along with special receptions and themed meals specific to each event. Dietary restrictions and preferences will be accommodated whenever possible.
