Remaining on campus after residences close is not permitted, except in extenuating circumstances as outlined below. Please contact the housing operations office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions.
Late stay can be granted by approval at the end of the fall semester when the Five College exam schedule extends past the date of Hampshire campus closing, and for certain travel circumstances. Application information will be distributed during the semester via Hampshire email, and the Important Dates and Deadlines page. The application can be found at http://hoo.hampshire.edu by clicking on the "Late Stay" tab, which will appear in late November or early December when the application opens.
There is no option for late stay after the January term. Due to limited space on campus, the rooms that are vacated by students leaving after January term are needed right away for students returning to the College for the spring semester. Because each room needs to be inspected and cleaned before it is occupied by a new resident, we cannot allow students who are not continuing through the spring semester to remain on campus past the end of January term.
All students are permitted to remain on campus after the exam period, through 10 a.m. on the morning following commencement. No extensions to this deadline will be granted. Students must make travel and summer housing plans accordingly.
