Students who secure summer housing will be assigned to spaces in CHCRC. Summer residents should expect their rooms to be equipped with a bed (mattress and frame), desk and chair, bookcase, and a wastebasket. Students must supply their own linens. No pets (including birds, rodents, or insects) are allowed in residence hall rooms. Read more about your room. Students assigned to Summer Housing will have temperature control. Summer Session applicants who currently live on campus for spring 2021 will transition to their summer housing assignment prior to halls closing for the semester on May 15th at 9:00pm.
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.
