Summer Housing 2022

Summer Housing requires both an application from students, and a sponsorship from an Amherst College department.  Graduates are not eligible for summer housing. 

The student application is available now in the Housing Portal. 

This form will ask you about your anticipated housing needs, contact information, and possible roommate information.  Summer housing request forms are due Wednesday, May 18. 

It is important to note that most students engaging in any portion of the following segments of summer housing will need to change housing assignments during their stay. Summer Housing is broken down into 3 major segments, each with their own eligibility criteria.  

  1. Spring to Summer Transition (May 25 to June 12)
    Located in Tyler, Seligman, Valentine, Humphries, Chapman, Plimpton, and Marsh.  
    1.
