Purdue's Hotels.com

Good News!!  In an effort to better serve our departments who need to reserve lodging for undergrads or non-employees, the university has teamed with Hotels.com to offer a convenient, cost-effective means of booking hotel reservations.

A 'Purdue Hotel Credit Card' is already installed in the site.  When the transaction is finalized, this card will be charged for the entire hotel stay.  Travelers will need to present a personal credit card at the hotel for any incidental expenses during the stay.  

Please forward the hotel confirmation to the traveler to present upon check-in.


  • Only Single/Standard room rates are allowable.  Double occupancy rooms may only be booked if more than one Purdue employee is sharing a room and both are on Purdue business. 
    • Some rooms state the room rate is for 1 or 2 persons.  These rooms are considered single rate.
  • Always print out the registration confirmation and forward it to the non-employee traveler to present when checking in
  • Always preview the 'Cancellation Policy' before booking.  Inform the non-employee traveler of the cancellation rules.
    • Some bookings are non-refundable.  Purdue discourages travelers from booking non-refundable rooms
  • Always preview the Payment Method before booking
    • Some bookings are 'Reserve or Hold Only' 
    • In this case, the traveler should be aware that their personal card will be charged at check-out
