Visiting

Notice

In response to the evolving situation with COVID-19, Amherst College made the difficult decision to close all campus buildings to the public and suspend all on-campus public events until further notice. 

As of June 14, 2021 visitors will be allowed onto the grounds of the campus only (not in College buildings) — with the exception of the tennis courts and Pratt Field. Masks are required outdoors on campus grounds when individuals are unable to maintain a distance of 6 feet.
