New Student Computing Information

Did you get your Hampshire login information? If you paid your deposit online, you will have received your Hampshire username and password at that time. If you paid by another method, you will be receiving your login by email. If you've paid your deposit and did not receive your login info, please contact the help desk.

You will need to begin using your account immediately to access your Hampshire email and the College’s online systems for housing selection, course registration, financial aid, campus directories, calendars, and other information. This account replaces any that you may have been issued by admissions.

Get started:

  1. You must activate your account by going to You will be prompted to accept our Acceptable Use Policy, set up security questions, enter alternative contact methods for password recovery, and change your password. Your new password must have at least one number, one UPPERCASE and one lowercase letter, be at least eight characters long, and must not contain a dictionary word.
  2. Starting in June (or January, for students starting in the Spring), check your "to do" list on TheHub by visiting Log in, click on “Students," and select “New Student To Do List." There are a number of forms that you will need to complete online; this "to do" list will tell you what you need to fill out. TheHub will regularly add new information and forms, so please visit often. Please note that items on the to-do list may not be available to fill out right away.
  3. Check your Hampshire email by going to Again, please check it often, as the College will send many important communications to your Hampshire email address.

PLEASE NOTE: Your HampNet account information should not be shared with ANYONE.
