Cutter is centrally located. It is directly across the street from the Campus Center, where students can socialize, lounge and get a quick bite to eat.
Neilson Library, academic buildings and administrative buildings are only a five-minute walk and downtown Northampton is only 10 minutes away.
The Cutter living room has a television and fireplace, which gets plenty of use in the winter. Next to the living room is the “beau parlor,” a quiet room for reading. It received this nickname in the late 1950s when students had to meet their beaus in this room because men were not allowed upstairs.
Each room has a large window that runs the width of the room and a drape provided by the college. A large closet and set of drawers are built into one end of the room, providing ample storage space.
The wings of Cutter and Ziskind come together to form a courtyard. Rumor has it that the area was originally designated to be a pool site. No evidence of a pool exists, although students still find that the courtyard is a great place to get some sun.
