Welcome

Our thoughts are with everyone in the path of Harvey. We are ready to assist Amherst College students who have been affected in every way we can. Most importantly, safety must be the first priority for our students and their families; we urge you to follow the instructions of the authorities working in your area.

For students whose travel to campus may be delayed by the effects of the storm, we will integrate you into housing, classes, and programming for the fall semester when you arrive.

When it is safe to do so, affected students can call the College at 413.542.2291 at any time, day or night. Tell the dispatcher you are calling with an update for the administrator on call, and leave your name and number. You will receive a call back quickly. The administrator will work with you and coordinate with other College personnel to respond to your needs.

Amherst sends heartfelt condolences to the residents of the Gulf Coast region as they respond to this devastating storm.
