For the 2021-2022 academic year common spaces in residence halls can be reserved for meetings but not events. Common spaces have reduced capacities which are posted in each area.
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 gatherings and programs. 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 by individuals or student orgs for occasional (not weekly) small meetings, rehearsals, study groups, etc. The common space reservation process and applicable forms are located on our common space reservations page. 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.
