On Campus

Residential Hall Lodging 

Registration is now open! Staying on campus is the best way to be close to all of the commencement activities. Our campus residence hall accommodations, in single or double occupancy, provide casual comfort at affordable rates. Each floor offers a lounge that encourages interaction with other guests while offering you the option of retreating to your own room to prepare for the next day’s activities. Parking is free and close by, and linens and towels are provided. There are a few rooms available for guests with disabilities so please be sure to indicate any special accommodation needs when registering. All rooms will be located in a low-rise residence hall in the Southwest Residential Area, a convenient location to the various Commencement activities held throughout the weekend and the closest lodging option to the main Commencement ceremony held at McGuirk Stadium on Friday night. To register, please visit https://umass.irisregistration.com/Site/CommencementFor questions and/or registration assistance, call 413-577-8102 or email  registration@umass.edu.
