I Need Housing

On Campus

On campus room rates are set annually by the board of trustees. Special housing options include quiet floors, alcohol-free halls, single sex floors, co-ed suites, gender inclusive housing, and multilingual halls.

Nowhere to go over break? Talk to Residential Life Student Services about Break Housing in Brett, Johnson, Prince, Cashin, and Wheeler halls.

Off Campus

The Off Campus Student Center is located in Bartlett 103. The Center is a comfortable place for all off campus students. Graduate and undergraduate student staff members all live off campus. They will be happy to answer your questions or refer you to someone who can. 

Need to find housing or roommates? The Center maintains a searchable rental database where you can find housing in some apartment communities and neighborhoods in Amherst and towns nearby. Sign up to create a roommate profile and search for students with housing to offer.
