College Towns

Hampshire County is home to five colleges. There are an abundance of rentals available close enough to each school without being located directly on campus. This provides the bonus of separating home and school life. There are many other benefits to living off campus, such as having more space and potentially saving money on housing. 

There are three colleges located in Amherst, meaning there is large availability for those who desire to be close to this type of atmosphere.

Located within the artistic and cultural town of Northampton is Smith College. Living off campus is popular in this area as there are many opportunities to rent with or without roommates of your choice. Enjoy all that Northampton and Smith College have to offer, including the botanical gardens that are located on campus.

A popular rental area for those attending Mt. Holyoke College is Easthampton. This town can provide a feeling of privacy while offering easy access to the College in South Hadley, along with the towns of Amherst and Northampton.
