About the Community
McNamara 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. McNamara is also home to the Sylvan snack bar, a student run business that serves snacks from the basement.
