Central check-in (CCI), held in the Indoor Track and Tennis facility (ITT) on West Street, is your first stop when you arrive on campus for Orientation. At CCI you will receive the keys to your house and room and your college ID card (OneCard), as well as clearance from Health Services and Student Financial Services. You will also have the opportunity to open a bank account and learn about many of the services Smith has to offer. Central check-in is required and you must complete the process before you proceed to your house. You must arrive during CCI hours.

Central check-in for Fall 2014 will be held on Thursday, August 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. and Friday, August 29 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. The Orientation program begins on Friday, August 29 at 9:30 a.m.

Once you have completed central check-in you will proceed to your house to move in. There you will be greeted by Heads of New Students (HONS) and Residence Life staff members who will help you get settled. If you arrive on Thursday, the rest of the evening is yours to settle in, explore downtown Northampton for dinner, or make that last-minute run to the store. On Friday, simply follow the Orientation schedule that you will receive at central check-in.

If you will need overnight accommodations we suggest you book early, as there are several colleges and universities in the area and all hold Orientation around the same time!
