The Bailey Brown House

The Arts at Amherst Initiative promotes cross-disciplinary collaboration and connects artists with the broader Amherst community. As part of this mission, we provide short-term housing at the Bailey Brown House for guest artists who visit Amherst College. The Bailey Brown House is located at 19 Hitchcock Road, across the street from the Alumni Gym. Explore the Bailey Brown House Virtual Tour for a complete guide to the home.

Guest Guidelines: *
Guests at the Bailey Brown House are expected to follow all Amherst College safety protocols. In accordance with College safety protocols, we ask visitors to avoid indoor bars and restaurants. We ask visitors to eat outside when possible and maintain physical distancing when dining indoors. Please visit the Amherst College COVID FAQ page for more information. We encourage faculty sponsors to discuss these guidelines with their guests ahead of time. Because Bailey Brown House is a sharing housing accommodation, if it is not possible for guests to follow these guidelines, we ask faculty sponsors to find alternative accommodations. If guests fail to comply with College COVID rules, they will be asked to leave the Bailey Brown House.
Additional Obligations: *
I understand that the sponsoring department is required to pay cleaning fees for the Bailey Brown House should the guest contract COVID-19 during their stay.
