Call 413-538-2300 for information about lost and found items.



Please do not park on Route 116—you will be ticketed. To register, you may park temporarily on the access road adjacent to Mary E. Woolley Hall. Parking in the spots adjacent to your headquarters dorm is for loading and unloading only (unless you have a Disabled Parking placard and need to park in an HP space). After unloading, please park your car in one of the lots listed below.

  • Equestrian Center
  • Gorse (across the street from Creighton Hall)
  • Ham-MacGregor (across the street from Ham and MacGregor Halls)
  • Kendall Sports and Dance Complex
  • Mary Lyon (across from the main gate)
  • Morgan Street (grass lot, corner of Rte. 116 and Morgan St.)
  • Observatory

NOTE: No parking is allowed in the Gaylord Library lot (located across the street from the college library behind the MHC lot).

Central campus roads are closed to through-traffic, unless you have specific permission for deliveries or special-access needs.

Cars that block the Saturday morning parade route (which will be clearly marked) or impede access to residence halls in any way will be towed at the owner’s expense. Emergency access and deliveries to dorm kitchens are crucial. Your cooperation is appreciated.


Rain Plans

Walking tours will be canceled if there is a downpour. Call the Alumnae Association at 413-538-2300 (2300 from any campus telephone) before an event to inquire about its status in the event of rain. The parade will take place rain or shine—clear ponchos will be provided if it is raining. Marchers not wishing to walk in the rain may wait in Chapin Auditorium, where the Alumnae Association annual meeting will be redirected (from the Richard Glenn Gettell Amphitheater), if it rains.


Registration Wallet

If your registration wallet is stolen or lost, please see the reservation coordinator in Mary E. Woolley Hall as soon as possible.

Your wallet should contain the following:

  • Alumnae OneCard—Provided for each alumna and adult guest, this card gives you access to your class headquarters and all dorms being used by alumnae during the weekend.
  • Room key(s)—provided if overnight accommodations have been pre-reserved.
  • Meal tickets—provided for all pre-reserved meals. Tickets will be collected at each meal. You are required to bring your wallet to all meals as a backup.
  • Reservation card (located in the window of your wallet)—this card identifies the selections you have pre-reserved and must remain in the wallet at checkout.

Your wallet and its contents (key, OneCard, tickets, etc.) must be returned to the black key-return box at the reception desk of your class headquarters dorm before noon on Sunday. A $15 charge will be assessed for each missing key and/or access card. If you have any questions about registration, please see the reservation coordinator, Mary E. Woolley Hall, New York Room (second floor), or call 2624 (from any campus telephone) or 413-538-2624 (from your cell phone).



In case of emergency, please call campus police at 413-538-2304 from your cell phone, or use an emergency phone on campus (there are more than twenty special safety telephones on campus, marked by blue lights). From any campus phone, dial 1-911 to reach campus police. We recommend that you keep your room locked at all times. The campus police office is located across from the Health and Career Development Centers on Everett Road (Rte. 116 North, right on Park Street, and left on Everett Road).
