Due to the high volume of reservation requests for key Denison University events such as Commencement, Reunion, and Big Red Weekend, the Granville Inn holds a lottery for overnight accommodations for these events.

In order to enter the lottery, please complete all fields in the form below. Approximately 30-45 days prior to the key event weekend, the Granville Inn will contact those guests who have been selected to finalize the reservation and obtain credit card information to secure the overnight accommodations.

After all rooms have been secured, those who have not been selected will be notified by the Granville Inn. Please note that entry into the lottery is not a guarantee that you will have a room. We advise that you also may choose to seek out a second accommodation in the event your name is not selected in the lottery.

Lottery entries are now open through spring of 2021. In an effort to maintain the integrity of the lottery for all individuals seeking accommodations for key Denison University events, duplicate entries will not be considered.
