If there are parts of the Contract that you do not understand, please call Residential Life Student Services at (413) 545-2100 and ask for clarification. No graduate student will be permitted to select a room assignment until the Contract has been signed.

Fall 2014 Application Process for New Graduate Students

Currently all graduate spaces have filled. 

Selecting a Room Assignment
In most instances, when a completed application and prepayment is received an email will be sent to graduate students' OIT email address instructing them to log on to SPIRE, sign the Graduate Residence Hall Contract, submit a Housing Profile. This email will also include instructions for using Online Room Selection in SPIRE to select a fall 2014 assignment. All graduate students who submit complete applications prior to May 18, 2014 will see their appointment posted by 12:00pm on May 19th. Room Selection will be available from May 20, 2014 - July 14, 2014.

Lincoln Apartment Parking
Students living in the Lincoln apartments are eligible to purchase a parking permit from Parking Services. Spaces are limited and permits will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Student Services must notify Parking Services that you are eligible for a parking permit before you may purchase a permit, therefore you may not request a permit until after you have selected a space on campus.

One week after you have secured a housing assignment, you may contact Parking Services to inquire about available lot spaces.
