Ziskind House

Ziskind House

Ziskind is centrally located across the street from the Campus Center, where students can get a quick bite to eat, lounge and socialize.

Neilson Library, academic and administrative buildings are only a five-minute walk, and downtown Northampton is ten minutes away.

The living room has a television and fireplace, which gets plenty of use in the winter. Next to the living room is a quiet room for studying or reading. The room also houses the steadily growing Ziskind House library and is a great place for meetings and gatherings.

Each room has a window that runs the width of the room, providing much sunlight (drapes are provided by the college.)

The wings of Ziskind and Cutter come together to form a courtyard. In the winter it is a fantastic place for snowball fights. In the spring and fall, it is often used for house barbecues.

During the winter break (after classes end in the Fall but before J Term begins) Ziskind and Cutter house are used to house any international student who has chosen to remaun on campus for the winter break. International students aleady assigned to Ziskind or Cutter mayt remain in their assigned room during this tie. However, international students who reside in other houses during the academic year are assigned to the room of existing Ziskind and Cutter students.
