Welcome to All New First-Years, Transfers, Visiting Students & Ada Comstock Scholars

Smith is a vibrant place of interesting people and experiences. Our goal is for you to arrive on campus prepared to begin your Smith experience. We’re very excited to have you join us, and we look forward to greeting you during Orientation. To help you prepare, this website provides important information about the campus, introduces you to specific parts of our community and refers you to other Smith websites with more details. This site will be edited regularly, please check back in and note any updates. If you have any questions, please contact us. We’re happy to help!

Smith Reads

The Smith Reads selection for 2023 is The Book of Delights by Ross Gay. Learn more on the Smith Reads page.

Need Some Gear?

The Smith Computer Store, located in Stoddard Hall 202, has everything imaginable for your electronics needs—from new MacBooks and iPads to the smallest cables and adapters, we’ve got you covered. If it’s Smith-branded clothing or accessories (or just some on-campus staples!) you’re after, stop by the bookstore at 8–10 Green Street. At either location, a valid Smith ID will get students, faculty, and staff members various discounts.
