Chase House

Originally built in 1827, Chase House was occupied by several prominent local families until established as a school for girls by Mary A. Burnham in the 1870s. The Burnham School was incorporated into the college as a campus house in 1968 and named for Mary Ellen Chase, an accomplished writer and professor of English literature at Smith.

Weekly film/DVD nights provide a popular way to take a study break. Chase also has two area coordinator offices in the basement of the building.

Substance-Free-Living Floor

Recently Chase House added a substance-free living floor in response to student requests.

The application to live on the substance-free floor is available on the Forms & Applications page. Information about the lottery is available on the Special-Interest Housing Lottery page.
