Resources for Parents and Families

At Mount Holyoke College, supporting students through their college experience is our number one priority — supporting parents is a close second. We understand the importance of knowing — and sharing with your student — all things Mount Holyoke. From academic and extracurricular opportunities, course registration and internship deadlines, dinner menus and library hours, many questions arise over four years. Having resources at your fingertips is vital.

If you are concerned about a student, please contact the Dean of Students Office. If you believe it’s an emergency, please call Campus Police at 413-538-2304.
