#askthehoo   Housing Shares
Looking for something to do on this glorious snow day? Seems like a great opportunity to make sure your common area is ready for this semester’s round of fire, health, and safety inspections! Starting next week, Res Life and Housing staff will be entering each and every common area (hallways, lounges, stairwells, living rooms, and kitchens), just to make sure the Community Norms found in NSNS (https://handbook.hampshire.edu/node/43) are being upheld. See this picture for a list of the most common violations, and don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions!!

Be Safe!!

Dear Students,

If you are still on campus, and are concerned that weather conditions have made it dangerous to travel today, you are permitted to stay. However, we expect you will vacate campus by 9am tomorrow morning, unless you have been previously approved to stay later. Please be aware, onecards will not function after 9pm tonight.

In-Mod Room Changes and Alternate-Listing

On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, housing staff lovingly hand-delivered VERY special INDIVIDUALIZED forms to each and every mod on campus. These forms are bright red and should be hanging on your fridge. They give you an opportunity to painlessly let us know if anyone will be switching rooms within the mod, and if any of you have plans to occupy any rooms that will be vacant for next semester. It also conveniently supplies a place for you to list “Alternates” - fellow students who you would be especially interested in living with, should any vacancies appear in the coming semester. Please read the directions, and do not hesitate to call, email, or stop by if you have any questions!!! These forms are due back to the HOO by next Wednesday, December 11.

You’re welcome :)

Welcome back!

CLA invites Hampshire students for FREE ICE SKATING:
This Sunday, November 24th and Sunday December 8th, from 2:30-4:20pm, at the UMass practice rink next to the Mullins Center. Show your ID and it&#8217;s FREE, skates included!!
CLA has a 12 passenger van leaving the bus circle at 1:50pm on both Sundays, which is also when bus 38 leaves Hampshire for UMass, so either way transportation should be easy.
Free skating (with free skate rental and transportation) doesn&#8217;t come your way every day!!!

Have questions about housing for next semester? Wondering about your friends who are coming back from leave? Wondering about yourself coming back from leave? 

Don’t worry!!! The HOO will be sending out more information in the coming weeks. All mods will have a chance to re-arrange themselves, and list alternates! All students on leave or field study will have a chance to declare their preferences!

All this (AND MORE) will take place AFTER November 18th.
