Visit Campus Buildings

Discover Smith Houses

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.

At Smith you will experience a living tradition of intellectual rigor and scope. Take a risk on an untested concept. Develop the acuity to frame an argument, and the eloquence to persuade others of its merit. Take an art class even though your major is engineering. Work with a faculty of scholars who respect their students enough to expect the highest standards of academic achievement. See for yourself what it’s like to learn at Smith.
