Residence life is part of Smith's cocurricular environment that enhances and enriches the academic program. Students come from varied backgrounds, and the house community provides a supportive, social environment for students to learn about and appreciate each other's experiences and differences.
The Residence Life Information Forms (one for entering first year and transfer students as well as one for entering Ada Comstock scholars) will be available on Residence Life Self Service on Friday April 15 for students who have enrolled and paid their deposit. You will access Residence Life Self Service through the Smith portal. Trouble accessing the form? Check out our instructions on how to access Residence Life Self Service. Note: You must be logged into your Smith College email in the same browser to access the Google Doc instructions.

Early Arrival in Fall
If you believe you are coming back to campus early for Orientation related activities or athletics, please be in contact with your supervisor, adviser or coach. We will not send out early arrival confirmation emails until after all submissions are completed the first week of August.
Fall 2016 Arrival
Entering (new) students should check the Orientation page for arrival information. Returning students should expect to return on Tuesday September 6 from 1-4 pm or Wednesday September 7 from 10 am to noon. Students arriving early on September 4 will be assessed a $150 fee (charged to their student account) and may pick up keys from 1-4 pm. There will be no key pick up on Monday September 5. Key pickups require a OneCard. If you cannot pick up your own key, you must authorize a proxy to do so. Proxies must show authorization in the form of an email to you (printed or shown on a phone or mobile device) authorizing them to pick up your key. Be sure to include your student id number, name, house and room number in any proxy email.
