The majority of the campus is located in Amherst, with the western edge in Hadley. The amenities of downtown Amherst are approximately one mile from the center of the UMass campus, however the distance seems much further.

The town of Amherst has initiated the Gateway Project on University property along North Pleasant Street which will add retail, services, and housing along the way to downtown and will help link the town and University.

Developing clearer gateways, continuity of uses and amenities, and improved bicycle and pedestrian circulation would strengthen the transition and connections between town and campus..
