General Information

Eligibility: Summer housing is available to the following groups of residents who are at least 16 Years of age*:

  • Summer Classes: Students enrolled in UMass Amherst Summer Session classes. 
  • Summer Campus Job: UMass Amherst students employed on campus that requires them to be on-site. Applicants must document employment and be enrolled for Fall 2024.

Location: Summer Session assignments will be private and shared rooms located in CHCRC. There are a limited number of private rooms available for both Summer Session I and Summer Session I and II. If there is not a private room available, then Residential Life Staff will reach out to the student to discuss other options.

Summer residents are expected to conduct themselves according to University policies as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct. All summer residents must have a valid UMass Amherst ID Card (UCard). The UCard is used as the key to the main entrance of the residence hall. All residents are expected to carry their UCards. When campus staff ask residents for identification, the UCard must be presented. To preserve Residence Hall Security, the UCard must never be loaned to anyone.

*Students under 18 are required to submit a Parent/Guardian Consent Form. Please contact living@umass.edu to request that this form is sent to you.
