The College owns a number of rental housing units in which many members of the faculty and administrative staff reside. The College makes these units available to assist faculty and administrative staff in finding accommodations in Williamstown.
The Office of Real Estate oversees a lottery process to manage the assignment of available rental housing units. As described in the Faculty and Staff Housing Handbook, two lotteries are performed each calendar year. Once in November, for housing for the Spring semester, and once in the Spring during the month of April. The largest of the lotteries is the Spring lottery. This lottery is run to determine housing for the following Fall with the majority of move-ins occurring in the month of August. For eligibility for rental housing as well as the points system for the lottery, please refer to Section III-G of the Faculty Handbook and the Administrative Staff Handbook, Benefits: Other.
