New Student Forms

Please be aware that completion of the following forms is required for all fall 2022 entrants. Note that a HampNet login is required to fill out the forms.

*Form deadlines are subject to change.

Housing information

All Hampshire College students will be assigned single rooms (no direct roommate). First year students will be assigned to either Dakin or Merrill residence halls. Transfer students will be assigned to Merrill residence hall (with some mod or apartment-style spaces available for non-traditional transfer students).

Students needing a housing accommodation (including a service animal or emotional support animal) must submit a request to The Office of Accessibility Resources and services (OARS). OARS staff will review the request documentation, follow up if additional information or a meeting is necessary, decide whether the request is approved, and communicate the decision to the student. Housing accommodations approved before July 15 will be communicated to Residence Life and Student Engagement staff to prioritize when assigning housing for all incoming new students.

By June 1, Residence Life and Student Engagement staff will email all new incoming students information regarding the required housing form (due July 15). New incoming students will move into their college residence on Thursday, August 25 at specified times (to allow for an orderly process); Orientation activities will begin at 3 p.m. that day and will last through Tuesday, August 30. The first day of classes is Wednesday, August 31.

Housing assignments will be emailed to students by August 1, along with specific move-in appointment times. Visit this page for a detailed list of suggested items to bring (and not bring) to campus.
