Campus Location - UMass is a 1100 acre campus located in the rural college town of Amherst one hour north of Hartford CT, two hours west of Boston and three hours from New York City.
Helpful Information - On Campus Housing is guaranteed although preferences for specific areas can not always be met. Meal Plan is required if living on campus. Parking is available but will not be near where the student is living on campus. Off campus housing is plentiful but often requires a year lease and is rarely furnished. It is important for all students researching exchanges to check on the curriculum for their major at the host school - don't assume they are the same as at their home campus.
