Residence life is part of Smith's cocurricular environment that enhances and enriches the academic program. Students come from varied backgrounds, and the house community provides a supportive, social environment for students to learn about and appreciate each other's experiences and differences.
Summer Housing Reminders
You may not subtract weeks or change any weeks already contracted for, but you can always add weeks.

Be sure to pay careful attention to the key return deadlines sent to you in your confirmation emails.
