In The Heart of New England – The University of Massachusetts’ Amherst campus covers nearly 1450 acres with more than 150 academic buildings, libraries, and sports facilities in a friendly, unhurried pastoral setting. The Town of Amherst gracefully combines colonial charm with the vigor of one of New England’s major educational centers, The Five College Consortium: Smith, Hampshire, Amherst, and Mount Holyoke Colleges and The University of Massachusetts Amherst.
This area of Western Massachusetts offers an exhilarating degree of social, cultural and recreational diversity.
