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 the setting for many 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 interterm begins), Ziskind and Cutter house any international students who have chosen to remain on campus. International students aleady assigned to Ziskind or Cutter may remain in their assigned rooms during this time. However, international students who reside in other houses during the academic year are assigned to the rooms in Ziskind and Cutter belonging students away on break.
