HEADS UP! NO MORE THAN 4 UNRELATED PERSONS can live in a rental unit in the Town of Amherst. This by-law applies to all types of rentals; apartments, houses, etc. In the Town of Hadley the limit is 5 unrelated tenants. More important laws and by-laws...


Reminder. Keep bedding and other flammable stuff away from space heaters! More fire safety tips from the Amherst Fire Department.


  • Is your car ready for winter? It's time to stock your car with a shovel, a small bag of sand or cat litter, an ice scraper and jumper cables. You can purchase a Winter Storm Kit with these items at Parking Services.

  • Move your car and assist your Landlord or Property Manager so they can clear snow from the driveway or parking areas. Avoid a towing fee by knowing what they expect.


Are you looking for someone to Take Over your Lease or Sublet your place for the summer? Here's how to get it on the website.



Welcome to Off Campus Student Services at the University of Massachusetts. We are located in the Off Campus Student Center, room 314 Student Union. The Center is the on campus home for students who live off campus. Our Graduate, Undergraduate and Professional staff act as resources for students who live or plan to live off campus.

This website provides education, information and resources for prospective and current tenants, landlords, property managers, parents, and community members.

  • Students and parents can find housing, housemates, and information in the FAQs and in the Resource Center on budgeting, leases and rental agreements, landlord and tenant rights and responsibilities in MA, setting up a household, family living, getting involved on and off campus, neighbor relationships, and much more.

  • For property owners and others wishing to rent space to students and others the Resource Center provides you with sample forms, average contract rents, checklists, and worksheets that will enable you to find tenants and form mutually beneficial landlord/tenant relationships.
