Our Mission

The mission of Residence Life and Housing at Hampshire College is to support and complement the academic program with the goal of creating a holistic environment that encourages collaboration, connections, learning, and personal growth. We ensure the social, emotional, and physical well being of each resident while fostering diverse, socially just, and inclusive communities. Residence Life promotes the skills necessary for students to become engaged participants in their communities, emphasizing both individual initiative and community responsibility. We accomplish this mission through ethical practices, intentional education, advocacy, and example.

We value connection, growth, well-being, social justice, and community.
