All undergraduates at the college are required to live in a college house. For your first year, you should expect to share a room with an American student.
College rooms are quite simple; a bed, a desk, a chest of drawers, a chair and a closet are provided. The college does not supply curtains, sheets and bedding or lamps. You can purchase those after you arrive and during ISP. For your personal laundry, there are washing machines and dryers, for $1.50 per wash, in the basement of your house.
Dining services at Smith understands the needs of students with dietary restrictions (vegetarians in particular) and offers a variety of foods at all meals. You should have no difficulty in choosing among the various dishes offered at mealtime to match your own tastes or dietary restrictions. Special meals are available during Ramadan and we also have a Halal & Kosher kitchen for Muslim and Jewish students.
