Facilities management is responsible for most of the work involved in maintaining, repairing and altering Smith's residential, academic and administrative buildings.
Heating Season Start-up September 26th
Facilities Management will be turning on the steam to the campus starting on Monday, September 26th. The process of getting steam and heat to all buildings on campus takes approximately two weeks to complete. Thank you for your understanding through this time of transition.
Burton Lawn - Steam Roller Compactor
On Thursday, September 22 beginning at 8:30am, a vibrating dual-wheeled steam roller compactor will arrive at Burton lawn, where it will sit and vibrate for several minutes at intervals throughout the day. Those in proximity to Burton lawn (Bass Hall, Sabin-Reed, McConnell, Neilson Library, Alumnae Gym., Wright Hall and perhaps others) may notice some vibration travelling through your buildings during these short periods of time. This is an experiment being done in conjunction with the Smith College sciences to determine if the seismic activity, that one might expect from the renovations to Neilson Library will impact ongoing research nearby. Thank you for your patience during this important experiment.
