Living Rooms and Lounges

The lounges and living rooms in the residence halls are shared space for the residents of that building and their guests to enjoy.  The living rooms and lounges are open to the Mount Holyoke community for meetings and gatherings as well. Students can reserve main-floor lounges and living rooms for small private events.  Early in the fall semester, each residence hall community will meet to discuss how residents prefer to use the lounge space and community expectations for behavior in that space.

Common spaces in Residence Halls can be reserved Sunday through Thursday, 6-8pm by individuals or student orgs for occasional (not weekly) small meetings, rehearsals, study groups, etc.  Contact the Area Coordinator or Assistant Director of Residential Life who oversees the area of campus that you wish to reserve.  If you need regular weekly meeting space, consider a room on campus that is not overly popular and make a Request for Campus Space online.

Small Private Events

Residential Life and Student Programs partner to work with students requesting to host an SPE.  Please see the Small Private Events policy and request form for more information.  

The SPE policies are reviewed and amended periodically to best serve the greater good of the residential community.  Please contact your Res Life Area Coordinator  with questions, concerns or suggestions.
