Family Housing is available to UMass Students who are married and/or have dependent children. Family Housing Students live in one and two bedroom unfurnished apartments in North Village Apartments. These apartments are located in beautiful North Amherst, a half a mile from campus and a mile and a half from vibrant downtown Amherst.
The University and Residential Life would like to share the news about upcoming plans to bring new housing to students at UMass Amherst. We have concluded, after an in-depth study, that it is too costly to renovate some of the university’s aging housing units, including North Village. As a result, North Village will close next spring at the end of the academic year on June 30, 2020. The buildings will be taken down so the university can proceed with plans to build new graduate family housing. During this time of transition, we will not be accepting new residents and encourage those seeking off campus housing to visit the Off Campus Housing Service found here.
