Some important information to share


We hope you are doing well as you finish your last semester with us at Amherst College. We in Housing & Operations have some important information to share with you regarding your housing as a 2023 December Graduate:

  • Move-out Deadline for Fall Semester: You are required to move out of your current housing by noon on Friday, December 22, 2023, for the fall semester. We are not able to approve late departures for students who are not continuing on to Spring 2024.
  • Ineligibility for December Closure and January Recess: Students without Spring 2024 assignments are not eligible to reside on-campus during the December Closure period or any part of the January Recess.
  • Cancellation of Future Housing Assignment: Your housing assignment for the winter term and spring semester will be irreversibly canceled on November 27, 2023.
  • Availability of Former Housing Assignment: Your former housing assignment will be made available in the Housing Selection Process (HSP) on December 5, 2023. Spaces in these communities, multiple occupancy rooms, and suites may follow slightly different processes.
  • Occupancy Decisions: It's important to note that the Housing & Operations Team will determine who the next resident of your former space is in subsequent terms. We cannot support individual requests, and residents may not transfer their rooms to other students.

If you are not anticipating graduating in December, or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
