Hampshire College makes available various email lists and an announcements and calendar system to facilitate the exchange of timely and topical information among students, faculty, staff, and alums. All these resources require a secure HampNet login.
HCAnnouncements provides an open forum for all members of the College to post events and announcements. Both announcements and the calendar appear on the intranet.hampshire.edu home page. Any member of the community may submit events or announcements and may indicate the audience(s) for whom the posting is intended.
A daily digest of announcements is sent to all community members listing items posted in the last day. The digest includes hot links to the full text of announcements.
Some offices on campus are authorized to send "important" announcements; these may include academic deadlines, major events, or special statements from senior administrators. Campus police are authorized to send "campus alert" announcements regarding campus emergencies.
A listing of all the public mailing lists at Hampshire College is available at: lists.hampshire.edu
Five College mailing lists are hosted by Amherst College at: lists.amherst.edu/. Most of the Five College lists start with "FC" or with "5".
While the College affirms the right to freedom of speech, any electronic communication that violates College policies and/or local, state, or federal laws and regulations is prohibited.
