Spring 2022 Housing Lottery Timeline and Specifics
The Spring 2022 Rental Housing Lottery sign-up period will begin Tuesday, March 1 and will end Monday, April 4. Lottery selection will begin on Monday, April 11. At this time, we do not anticipate being able to offer in person tours of properties as part of the lottery process.
If you wish to be included in the Spring 2022 Rental Housing Lottery or have any questions, please contact Sharon Marceau in the Real Estate Office at [email protected] or 413-597-2195. She can provide specifics on properties that may be available as well as information on points and the lottery process.
Faculty and administrative staff may pool their points if they wish to occupy a single housing unit.
Spring 2022 Subletting Guidelines
If you are planning to take a sabbatical or leave of absence during the 2022-2023 academic year (either one semester or the entire year) and wish to make arrangements to sublet your rental unit through the College, contact Sharon no later than April 1.
For those who are planning to go on sabbatical or leave and intend to sublet your unit directly to another faculty or staff member at the College, contact Sharon no later than April 1.
We have published and clarified the existing subletting guidelines on the Real Estate web site: https://real-estate.williams.edu/rental-housing-subletting-guidelines/. We would encourage anyone contemplating a sublet to review the subletting options and guidelines for your housing unit while you are away on leave. We have updated the subletting application and have added a subletter application as well. Links for these new forms are included in the guidelines.
For full information on Subletting of College Rental Housing, refer to Section III-G of the Faculty Handbook: https://faculty.williams.edu/faculty-handbook and the Administrative Staff Handbook: https://handbooks.williams.edu/staff/benefits/benefits-other/rental-housing-program.
