Facilities Management

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, Monday, September 18th


Facilities Management will be turning on the steam to the campus starting on Monday, September 18th. 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.


New Ford Hall Parking Lot - Open


Though the site lights are still being installed, the new parking lot at Ford Hall can now be used for on campus parking. There are a total of 22 new staff and faculty parking spaces available and a new walkway connecting the West Street city lot with Green Street. This new parking lot is intended to offset the loss of approximately 10 spaces in Dickinson parking lot due to a construction access gate for Neilson renovations. 


Neilson Library Summer construction


May 30, 2017 to September 2017:

  • Start of site utility enabling work on the south east-front and west of Neilson. There is no work planned for the west, Burton Hall side of Neilson until the end of August.
  • Site perimeter fence will extend across the east elevation of Neilson Library from Alumnae Gym to the corner of Hatfield Hall and then extend to Wright Hall. Access to Wright Hall and Hatfield Hall entrances and exits will not change.
  • Main construction vehicle entrances will be at JMG Gate and through Dickinson Parking Lot
  • Long term; Neilson Drive will remain open with exceptions noted in specific dates listed below. Vehicle traffic will enter at JMG one way and exit to Elm Street at College Hall. The drive from Dickinson Lot to central campus will close until the Neilson Renovation is completed.
  • Vehicle access to Wright Hall for deliveries, service and HC parking will use Chapin Drive in from Upper College Lane.
  • Due to the construction perimeter, a new temporary paved walkway across Chapin lawn connecting Wright Hall to an area near John M. Greene will be constructed after the campus picnic on June 13th.
  • Over the course of the summer there will be utility work in basement of Hatfield Hall, but the building will stay open. Classrooms in Hatfield should not be scheduled over the summer.
  • There will be new campus utilities into Wright Hall basement, but nearly all work at Wright will be outside of the building.
  • There will be intermittent and scheduled electrical service downtimes mid- summer in several campus buildings related to new electrical distribution. Dates will be published in advance as they become available.
