Updates & Resources

As Hampshire College is exploring options for a sustainable, impactful future, this page will serve as a resource for information and updates as they are released. Content is organized by constituency and includes community announcements, FAQs, contact information, media coverage, and more.

On April 5, the Board voted to pursue keeping Hampshire independent and to engage fully in fundraising for that purpose.

Alums, parents, and friends of the College have come together this year like never before in partnership with our campus community to support Hampshire and recognize its significance to higher education. Our collective momentum, energy, and passion will help secure Hampshire’s future.

Hampshire will operate as a smaller college while we restructure and rebuild, and remains accredited and partnered with the colleges that founded Hampshire in the Five College Consortium, delivering valuable benefits for our students.

Hampshire is planning to celebrate our 50th anniversary and enroll a new class in fall 2020 to kick off our second half-century as one of higher education’s most innovative, influential colleges.
