Residence Closing

  • All students must vacate their rooms by the end of Hampshire’s advising/progress review period at the end of fall semester. In the spring semester non-graduating students must vacate their rooms at the end of the advising/progress review period; graduating students must vacate their rooms by 10 a.m. on the day after commencement. Please note, the change to the Residence Closing policy is under review. Until further notice, all students must vacate their residence by 10AM on the day after commencement.

  • All residence areas are closed during the winter break and occupancy is prohibited. Facilities and grounds and residence life staff will enter each room during this period to turn down heat, monitor fire safety compliance, and secure all areas.

  • Failing to leave by the designated departure time may result in referral to the Formal Conduct Process and a resulting sanction including but not limited to a significant fine, commensurate with the amount of time a student has been on campus when they should not have been.

  • Those students who have exams scheduled at one of the other Five Colleges after Hampshire College’s closing date must seek permission from the housing operations staff, by the posted deadline, to remain in Hampshire’s College's residences. In those cases in which permission is granted, students must leave on the day their exam is scheduled. In cases of self-scheduled and take-home exams at other institutions, Hampshire students may be required to vacate their rooms before the deadline given by Five College faculty. For exact deadlines, students should consult notices distributed by the Housing Operations Office as the end of the term approaches.
