Housing Policy - The Key, our student handbook, contains valuable information about student life, including our Housing Policy. Please read it and the Housing Agreement carefully, making particular note of the policies regarding damage to your room or residential hall. (No College furniture may be removed from your room at anytime)
New student housing: Cushing Hall, Carpenter X, Carpenter Y and the White House Complex house our new freshman students. Transfer students are normally housed together on the 2nd floor of Carpenter Z.
Communication: The College employs your H-SC e-mail account and your H-SC post office box to communicate critical College information about which you should know and for which you are held responsible. You should activate your H-SC e-mail account as soon as you receive your instructions included in your academic advising packet in June. This will be critical in contacting your roommate in July. As a student you are encouraged to develop the habit of checking each at least daily.
Mail: USPS, FedEx and UPS delivery is available through our post office in Graham Hall. Packages should be addressed to: Your Name, Hampden-Sydney College, Your Box Number-Graham Hall, 80 College Road, Hampden-Sydney, VA 23943
Residence Hall Closings: Students must contact the Office of Student Affairs (x6317) if they wish to stay on campus during Fall, Thanksgiving or Spring breaks and make other arrangements for meals if the dining hall will not be operating. All residence halls are closed during the break between first and second semester. Students must vacate their rooms the day of their last exam in December. Students have a 24 hour window following their last exam in May to pack up and move out of their dorm room.
