The student handbook is your annual contract with the College. Know the basics of community norms and academic policies.
Hampshire students take ownership of everything that connects their lives on campus. Being part of Hampshire is a whole new way of life, centered on community.
Our students do nothing by halves, merging their social, personal, political, recreational, and intellectual lives through passionate participation in a varied array of clubs, organizations, and activities.
Hampshire College also offers a wide variety of centers, services, and offices dedicated to enriching each student's Hampshire experience as well as deepening connections within, and across, the entire community.
Hampshire students, as part of the Five College consortium, are invited to take part in many events at the other four colleges. The Five College events calendar is a great place to keep your eye on for all kinds of events; from gallery openings to lectures, there is something for everyone.
Also, the Fine Arts Center at the University of Massachusetts each year organizes a "Center Series." These performance arts events are held at the University of Massachusetts, and tickets are available for Hampshire students at a reduced rate.
