The Smith campus is a beautiful natural setting that is as equally impressive as our academic environment. Tree-lined paths wind past more than 100 distinctive buildings where you’ll live, learn, work, make friends and explore your passions.
The 41 houses and complexes on the Smith campus range in style from modern to Gothic to classic revival. Each housing option has a sense of community at its core. Depending on your house assignment, you may have anywhere between 10 and 100 housemates, but no matter what size your house is, you’ll live in a vibrant community among diverse people with a range of experiences from which to learn.
