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.
Room Draw Slideshow
The slideshow for room draw is available for viewing online at http://www.smith.edu/sao/reslife/ROOMDRAW/index.html - note that because of the way the slideshow cycles, you may have to return to this page multiple times to view the available rooms following room draw. The slideshow cycling is reset in the morning each following day.
Room Draw is coming March 31-April 2
Be sure to double check the date and time you need to be there. If you are unable to attend, your proxy must have an email from you giving them permission to choose a room on your behalf. It's a good idea to review the Room Draw & Lottery pages to familiarize yourself with the process.
House Choice Form Prezi now available
Check out the Room Draw and Lottery pages for details on the house choice form or check out the Prezi about this process! (Please note: Some students find Prezi graphics disorienting, please use your best judgement when viewing)
Summer Housing Form
The summer housing form will go live on the Residence Life website starting April 15, 2015.
