Frequently Asked Questions

Are meals provided?

Although meals are not provided in the Siblings Weekend package, Dining Services will set up cash, quick cash and dining dollar pricing for the weekend at $6.50 for siblings. Also each meal plan (that a Bradley Student holds) has 1 guest meal allotted per week. The week starts on Sunday morning and goes through Saturday dinner, as long as the meal plan owner has not used their guest meal for the week, they can use their guest meals to purchase meals for their sibling.

What do we do about lodging?

We highly encourage all siblings to stay with their college students in the residence halls during this weekend. If families/parents are attending, you will be required to find lodging for yourself at any of the area hotels.
