Summer Session spaces have filled. Students can still complete the Summer Session Housing Application to be added to the wait list in the event that new spaces become available. Students interested in living in the Amherst area over the summer are also encouraged to research off-campus options as well.
Summer housing is available to the following groups of residents who are at least 16 Years of age*:
- Students enrolled in UMass Amherst Summer Session classes.
- UMass Amherst students employed on-campus that requires you to be on-site. Applicants must document employment and be enrolled for fall 2022.
Summer Session assignments will be private and shared rooms located in CHCRC. There are a limited number of spaces for students to transition directly from their spring 2022 on campus assignment when halls close. Students can indicate this preference on the Summer Housing Application.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to request that this form is sent to you.
