As a residential college, Hampshire requires students to live on campus. During years when there is a housing shortage, decisions about voluntary exemptions to this policy are made on a case by case basis. Students seeking an exemption based on a demonstrated medical need for a living environment that the College is unable to provide should contact the director of accessibility resources and services.
Apply Now for Fall 2017
The Application for Exemption to the Residency Requirement beginning fall 2017 is currently available. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the summer. Notification of approval, denial, or waitlist status will be sent to applicants' Hampshire College email address.
Please be aware there is already a waitlist for fall 2107.
These students should submit the off-campus application noting their automatic exemption.
Students returning from leave, field study, or exchange may apply for an exemption to the residency requirement while they are away by submitting the application. Any students who have previously been assigned to off-campus status will retain that status automatically, unless they file a return to campus request form. More information is available on the returning from leave page.
