Summer Pre-College Residential Programs at UMass Amherst

Residential pre-college programs at UMass combine all the major elements of college, including great academics, living in a residence hall, and eating in our award-winning dining commons. Of course, it takes a little help to adjust to life on a college campus, so we have live-in program assistants who are specially trained to help you get used to a new environment. We have lots of fun events in the evenings and on weekends that help you connect with other pre-college students.

UMass Amherst requires students participating in in-person pre-college programs to follow University COVID-19 safety requirements, including vaccination. Please see for current protocols.
