About the Community
Dickinson hall is a part of the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE). RFYE halls are designed as living-learning communities where first-year students can engage with their peers around common interests and pursuits. First-year halls offer intentional staffing and support to assist students in their transition to the University.
Should you have any Residential Life related questions, please feel free to contact our Student Services Office at 413.545.2100. The office staff is happy to answer your questions and refer you as needed! The Student Services Office is located in the Whitmore Administration Building, room 235.
