**Please note that the rooms, especially after everyone moves in, are NOT HUGE, so you will need to coordinate what you bring to campus with your roommates to avoid duplication. Communication with roommates over the summer is key.
That’s up to you. Many students find it easier to set up checking accounts at one of the local banks after they arrive. NBT Bank and ACCESS Federal Credit Union are all located in Clinton.
Sometimes the fastest way to ruin a friendship is to live together; often our friends’ individual lifestyles and habits are much different than ours and would not offer an ideal living situation. We do not put people who know each other before coming to Hamilton in the same room because it is our philosophy that all students need to have the valuable experience of meeting new people. We are a close community, so you will still have plenty of opportunities to see each other!
No. Because we use our halls all summer long, we need to make many last-minute adjustments to the rooms before students arrive. Your room will be ready for you on the first day of New Student Orientation. In case you need to come to the area early, view the list of local b&b’s, hotels and motels for accommodations.
The College does not have any storage areas on campus. A list of local storage companies can be found on our website.
You certainly can bring your own, as long as it is 3.2 cubic feet or smaller. It's always a good idea to check with your roommates so that you don't end up with more than one fridge in your room.
The College does not insure your personal belongings. You should arrange to have them insured before you come to school through your parents’ homeowner's or renter's insurance.
