Off-Campus Housing

Dear Hamilton Parents,

The Class of 2015 will be the final class to which we will offer the opportunity for Seniors to seek off-campus housing. A limited number of rising Seniors will be able to seek a waiver of the on-campus housing requirement and receive permission to live off-campus through a lottery process that will take place in February 2014.

Beginning with the Class of 2016, we will require all students (including Seniors) to live in on-campus housing. This change in policy is consistent with Hamilton's mission as a residential, liberal arts college, and reflects an increase in housing options for our students.

My staff and I would be happy to answer your questions.

Assistant Dean of Students for Residential Life
