DescriptionIt is the oldest and the most worn-looking of the cabins; this is due to its former use as a home for all unclaimed demigods, as well as the children of the minor gods. Its dull brown paint is chipped off (it really should be repainted) and there is a caduceus overhanging the door. Hermes' Cabin is the largest cabin and is packed at all times.
In the film adaptation, Hermes' Cabin has tent canvases on the windows for privacy and rooms for each of the occupants; Luke's room has a desk lined with computer monitors, Winged Shoes as a gift from his father Hermes, a map leading to the Underworld, a collapsible shield, a cot, and wooden shelves.
Hermes' Cabin had been lining the hills with traps, snares, and other kinds of surprises for the Romans.

Hermes' Acceptance Policy
Being the god of travelers, Hermes' cabin has an acceptance policy stating that any undetermined camper can stay inside. This means Half-bloods whose immortal parent has not claimed them or whose immortal parent doesn't have a cabin at camp would stay in the Hermes cabin.
After the events of The Last Olympian, most of the minor gods were given cabins at camp. It is assumed that the policy then only covered the unclaimed. All new campers stay in the Hermes cabin until they are claimed by their immortal parent.
