Area and Housing Resources
Although our section of Massachusetts is often called "The 5 Colleges Area" (for Smith College, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire College, Amherst College, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst), we are in fact surrounded by many more universities and community colleges. This means there's an abundance of student housing, hotels, and restaurants to be found. You can also find information at the Easthampton Chamber of Commerce or the Northampton Chamber of Commerce.
This is our most current list of listings, rental agencies, and property managers. We recommend that you seek housing early in the summer to beat the incoming college rush.
