Arrival & Central Check-In

Central check-in (CCI) is your first stop when you arrive on campus for orientation.  It is required and you must complete the process before you proceed to your house. CCI is held at the Indoor Track and Tennis (ITT) Facility on West Street.

Central Check-In Schedule

Central Check-In Details

Central Check-In for 2020 will be held on Wednesday, September 2. You must check in only during CCI hours.

At CCI you will receive the keys to your house and room, your college identification card (OneCard), as well as clearance from Health Services and Student Financial Services. You will also have the opportunity to open a bank account and learn about many of the services Smith has to offer. Remember, Central Check-In is required, and you must complete the process before you proceed to your house.

Once you have completed Central Check-In you will proceed to your house to move in. There you will be greeted by members of the Heads of New Students (HONS) and Residence Life staff members who will help you get settled. Arrive early enough to get through Central Check-In and move into your room before the President’s Welcome.

Find the ITT on the campus map.

Plan Ahead

If you will need overnight accommodations we suggest you book early, as there are several colleges and universities in the area and all hold orientation around the same time.
