Commencement Housing for Families

When will the families receive information about housing on campus during the Commencement Weekend? The information will be mailed before Thanksgiving break. We can make reservations after the mailing and we encourage all to file electronically. 

Can I make reservations on-line and use my credit card? Yes, after the information is sent.

What if I need special accommodations for members of my family? Please note your special needs on the housing form. We do our best to meet all requests, but housing is limited. 

Staying the Night

By Emily Gold Boutilier

In 1926, Bing Crosby cut his first record, Americans began to get their kicks on U.S. Route 66, and the future Queen Elizabeth II was born. At Amherst, the year marked, among other things, the opening of the Lord Jeffery Inn.

Intended to look like a historic Neo-Georgian Colonial, the Jeff quickly became a popular sleeping and dining place on the Amherst town common. But today, the building not only feels historic; it also feels out-of-date.
