Thank you for your interest in applying to Hampshire College! This year, Hampshire has begun the process of searching for a strategic partner as part of larger efforts to create a thriving and sustainable community for our next fifty years. During this time of transition, our Board of Trustees has voted to pause enrollment for the fall of 2019. In accordance with this vote we have suspended and withdrawn all applications for 2019. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time of change. Stay tuned for more information about the 2020 application process.
