Guest House

Welcome to the Principia Guest House

All Principia alumni, parents of current students, and friends of Principia are invited to enjoy our gracious accommodations. 

Due to the large demand for Principia Guest House accommodations during Parents’ Weekend (March 31–April 3, 2016), and out of fairness to all of our guests, we have initiated a room drawing. Please submit your information by Monday, February 8 to be considered.
