The Bunker is a resource center and study lounge for any currently enrolled student that is military affiliated.
In keeping with the recommendations of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, HCC is limiting campus foot traffic in order to maximize social distancing and keep our staff and students healthy. We are moving our student support services to phone, email, and other remote interactive options, including Zoom, Webex, and Google chat.
Whether you are a current or prospective student, please call 413.552.2321 or email our office and leave your name and contact information, and one of our staff will be in touch within 24 hours. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.
The area is managed by the Bunker assistant and military affiliated students called CQ's (Charge of Quarters) and is open only to military affiliated students as a quiet study space. The Bunker is located in DON 105. Hours during the academic year are 0800 – 1600, and closed during the winter and summer breaks. To arrange access to the Bunker during evening hours, please contact Robert Vigneault.
Free materials from area veteran organizations are available, and regular scheduled visits from local agencies take place throughout the academic year. Also provided is information about HCC resources, departments, and a staff directory. Student volunteers and a federal work study position manage the space and keep all information up-to-date.
Any student with military experience can apply to volunteer to be a CQ by picking up an application in the Bunker (DON 105), or by submitting an application.
The Bunker is located in DON 105. With classrooms next door, the space is a designated "quiet zone." Provided in the area are separate computer workstations, tables, chairs, a printer, and WiFi.
A Veterans' Lounge is located in DON 138. Tables and chairs for 15 create the perfect atmosphere for a casual conversation or meeting. The lounge also accommodates scheduled visits from HCC staff, facility, advisors, and community organizations.
