About the Community
Gorman Hall is a part of the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE). RFYE halls are designed as living-learning communities where first-year students can engage with their peers around common interests and pursuits. First-year halls offer intentional staffing and support to assist students in their transition to the University. For information about Residential Academic Programs available in Gorman, visit the RAP website.
Gorman will be the First-Year Break Housing Option. As a Break Housing Hall, Gorman has a large population of international students and Resident Assistants. Gorman is also adjacent to the International Programs Office (IPO). Students who specifically requested Break Housing accommodations will automatically be charged the Break Housing Rate. Students who did not specifically request Break Housing will be expected to vacate during Thanksgiving, Wintersession and Spring Break periods. Gorman residents who wish to remain over break periods can contact Residential Life Student Services to make a request. Students who are approved will be billed the additional $300 per semester break housing fee.
Should you have any Residential Life related questions, please feel free to contact our Student Services Office at 413-545-2100. The office staff is happy to answer your questions and refer you as needed! The Student Services Office is located in the Whitmore Administration Building, room 235.
During the academic year, you can also contact your Residence Director. They can provide you with more information about resources, staff there to support you, events, and opportunities to get involved within the community.
