Baldwin is less than a five-minute walk to the center of campus and is less than a block away from a Northampton pharmacy and grocery store. It's just a two-minute walk to downtown Northampton.
When Baldwin House was built at the turn of the century, on-campus housing was available to fewer than half of Smith's students. This large brick, ivy-covered building on Bedford Terrace was constructed to permit 77 students to live in college housing.
Visitors to Baldwin first notice its lovely front porch, perfect for lounging. On the first floor of Baldwin is a spacious living room and a comfortable foyer. The living room has a piano, a fireplace and cable television with DVD player and Playstation games. A collection of old Smith yearbooks, Baldwin scrapbooks and books donated by former Baldwin residents fill the room's bookcases.
