Sexual Offense Services

Hampshire College believes that sex is an experience that should be freely chosen, respectful, consensual, and enjoyable. We strive to create a violence-free campus and are committed to implementing prevention strategies and providing victims/survivors with support, services, and information.

Summer Resources for Students Regarding Sexual Offenses

The office of sexual offense services, the sexual offense crisis line, and the office of health and counseling services will not be open during summer break, effective May 20, 2013. If you are in need of support, please use the resources listed below during the summer.
