About the Community
Cashin Hall is a multi- year community. Multi-year communities are designed to provide sophomores, juniors and seniors with enriching experiences, autonomy and self-discovery, continued learning and connections with a diverse group of UMass Amherst students.
Cashin is a Break Housing hall. This means that residents who live here do not have to leave during Thanksgiving, Wintersession, and Spring breaks. Cashin also hosts the Nontraditional Student Program for students who are at least 23 years of age and wish to live in a quieter community.
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.
During the academic year, you may also contact the Residence Director for Cashin Hall at 413-545-1622. The Residence Director can provide you with more information about resources, staff, events and opportunities within the community.
