The years you will spend living on campus will have a long-lasting impact on your life. It is a time for appreciating differences, exploring relationships, and having experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. The residence life and housing staff is here to help you find a comfortable home.
Housing Assignment Process
Our housing preference forms are available on TheHub (https://thehub.hampshire.edu/) starting on June 3 for the fall 2013 term, and should be submitted by July 1 for the fall term and by mid-January for the spring 2014 term.
All housing preference forms submitted by the deadline will be randomized to determine the order in which room assignments will be made. Forms submitted after the deadline will be considered in the order in which they are received. The later you submit your form after the deadline, the lower the likelihood that we can meet many of your preferences. Please understand that we are rarely able to meet all of someone's preferences, even when the form is submitted on time. We work hard to balance everyone's needs and preferences in order to create healthy communities.
Completing the Housing Assignment Process
Much like our students, each housing area at Hampshire is unique. Room size and shape vary according to the house you will be living in and the position of your room on the hall. Because of these variations, we are not able to tell individual students the exact dimensions of their future rooms. Each single room is, however, around 100 square feet, and each double is around 200 square feet. Please keep this in mind when considering the size and number of items you bring with you.
Wondering what to bring with you? You'll find a handy list to start packing from, as well as the furniture we provide, and a few things we ask you NOT to bring.
