Mount Holyoke College Tenant Handbook
Statement on Mount Holyoke College Rental Housing
The College owns a number of apartments and houses that are primarily available for rental to non-tenured faculty members and, occasionally, to new faculty who arrive with tenure and certain administrative employees of the College. Housing policies and practices have been developed in cooperation with the Faculty Conference Committee and are reviewed periodically by the Committee. The College housing program is administered by the Rental Property Department, 212 Northampton Road, Amherst, MA 01002.
The College recognizes that there are mutual benefits to be served if faculty live near the center of campus life; consequently, it has acquired properties and maintains them in order to accommodate new faculty moving to South Hadley. It should be noted, however, that housing is the individual's and not the College's responsibility. The Rental Property Department does not assume the responsibility of finding rental units for all new appointees. Therefore, housing is not guaranteed.
To complement the College housing program, a mortgage loan plan is available to full-time members of the faculty with tenure-track, tenured, or senior lecturer appointments and to certain administrative employees. The plan is subject to conditions outlined in the "Handbook of Faculty Legislation and Related Information." This handbook can be obtained by contacting the Dean of Faculty’s Office.
