About the Community
Crampton Hall is a multi- year community. Multi-year communities are designed to provide sophomores, juniors and seniors with enriching experiences, autonomy and self-discovery, continued learning and connections with a diverse group of UMass Amherst students. Crampton is home to the Nuance: Multicultural Student Program which strives to give its residents an insight into current issues of Social Justice and Diversity.
Whether pursuing a program of study in social justice or simply interested in dialogue and exploration of these issues, students will have opportunities to take classes with peers, as well as collaborate and participate in community engagement projects (on and off campus) to address social justice issues. Students will have the opportunity to develop awareness, knowledge, and skills to effectively participate in dialogue and build inclusive residential communities.
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.
