Hampshire was founded by four neighboring institutions-- Amherst College, Mt. Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Together, we make up the Five College Consortium, a huge network of academic and social resources.
Students at any of the five campuses can cross-register for classes, join clubs, try out for club sports and performing arts groups, borrow books, attend events, and even eat food and the other four schools. That's over 6,000 classes a year, 9 million volumes among the libraries, hundreds of clubs, and about 30,000 potential new friends to make.
