    Descriptions of Housing Options

    Within the framework of the college regulations described in the Smith College Student Handbook (www.smith.edu/sao/handbook/index.php), each of these housing options is self-governing. Living successfully in college housing is dependent on a commitment to living in a community with others. All residents must balance their desire for individual freedom with the need for sensitivity and respect for others. Each housing facility has a resident house coordinator who acts as the liaison between the college and the unit. All college housing has full access to the internet.

    1) Residential House

    150 Elm Street (12 singles) Students in 150 Elm Street will be allowed to live there year round. The fee for living at 150 Elm will be the same for living in a single in a traditional house on campus. Those students who choose to stay for some or all of the summer will pay summer housing fees based on what meal plan option they choose. Students living at 150 Elm will have the option of choosing whether or not to be on the meal plan. The non meal plan cost is $7480 per academic year and the meal plan cost is $14,950 per academic year. The kitchen is large enough that students could prepare their own meals and have space to store food and necessary cooking items. The living room and kitchen are attractive community gathering places while still enabling student’s privacy in their single rooms.This option gives students the opportunity to live in community and still enable a good deal of independence and autonomy, much like living in an apartment but with shared common space and bathrooms. 54 Green Street (13 singles) The 13 singles in 54 Green Street will be available during the academic year semesters for full-time ACS’s. Cost of these rooms will be equal to a traditional house room and board cost for each semester. If there is space available we will offer this to ACS commuter students who may cook their own meals. The rooms for commuter students will be much like a hotel where students will have to check in and out each week. The rooms will be used for breaks and weekends on a case by case basis.

    2) Family Housing

    (Children and partners allowed; no pets) Conway Apartments (10 units, 8 two bedroom and 2 three bedroom) Since it opening in 2006, Conway has only housed ACS with dependent students. Priority for living in Conway will continue to be given to ACS’s with children but when there are vacancies that ACS’s with partners be given the chance to live there. The following priority will be used in assigning Conway apartments, where in all cases priority among each group would be given to those moving from the greatest distance from campus: 1. Single ACS Parents. 2. Partnered ACS parents with children. 3. Partnered ACS without children. In addition to the above priorities, when space runs out, the date applications were received in the Office of Residence Life will be taken into consideration. If an ACS student child becomes over 18 while they are in residence this will change their priority for housing at the end of the academic year. Conway apartments will continue to be open twelve months a year.

    3) Commuter Housing

    (Room only; shared spaces; no pets, children, or partners) 54 Green Street This house is located on Green Street, neighbor to Ford Hall and across the street from Hubbard House. 54 Green is specifically an Ada Comstock house with a house community comprising commuter students and full housing and meal students. It has 13 single rooms. Students share a kitchen, bathrooms, and social space. Students who live beyond easy driving distance (more than 45 minutes away) may spend one to five nights per week on campus. Rooms are not available on the weekends and during breaks. Arrangements for the number of nights in commuter housing will be made at the beginning of each semester, once each student's academic schedule is finalized. Parking is available for a fee. 54 Green Street commuter spaces will be available once all full-time students requesting space have been confirmed.
