Those who are away for the spring hoping to participate in the housing lottery. Shortly after spring break all students currently on leave, field study, or exchange will receive an email (at their Hampshire email address) with instructions on how to be housed for the fall, including how to participate in the lottery if they so choose. Students will be asked to fill out a housing preference form, which will include a spot to name a "proxy," a student who is currently enrolled at Hampshire who can act on their behalf during the lottery.

Wondering what room you've been assigned to? Housing assignments will be available on TheHub no later than one week prior to students' arrival on campus.

Previously lived off campus? If a student has previously been assigned to off-campus status, that student will retain that status automatically. To return to campus housing, students must file a return to campus request and housing preference form.

Hoping to live off campus for the first time? Exemptions to the residency requirement are granted on a case by case basis. Please consult our off campus page for details.

Questions or concerns? Please feel free to contact the housing operations office with any questions or concerns regarding your housing options, the housing preference form, deadlines, or procedures.

We look forward to seeing you again!
