Geneva Smith Hall

Major Renovations for Geneva Smith Residence Hall are planned during 2017-2018!

The opening of Merrill Place presented the ideal time to take Geneva Smith Residence Hall off-line for major renovation during the 2017-2018 academic year. We are excited– how about you?!

About Geneva Smith Hall …

Geneva Smith is located between Prospect Dining Hall and Hyde Hall (one of the larger academic buildings on campus). Geneva Smith Hall has a large central recreation room with a big screen TV and several recreation tables; a study lounge and comfortable meeting space; a kitchen; laundry facilities; and a large bicycle storage room in the basement. Wireless internet is available throughout the building as well.

Most of the rooms in Geneva Smith are designed with a divider that separates the room into two areas. This gives students the opportunity to develop creative ways to live, sleep, and study together.

When asked what some of the best things about living in Geneva Smith are, students responded with answers like this:

“Sense of community”
“Living right in the middle of campus. Very convenient & nice”
“It’s fun and everyone is nice!”
“It’s right next to the dining hall”
“All the friends I’ve made!”

In the past …

Because enrollment continued to expand at the college, Geneva Smith Hall was completed in January of 1968 as a women’s residence hall. Standing 7 stories tall, it is a twin of Grafton hall.

To honor Geneva “Miss Mathematics” M. Smith’s 42 years of service they named this residence hall after her.
