Hobart and William Smith Colleges offer an array of imaginative, largely interdisciplinary degree programs to undergraduate and graduate students in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

Our 188-acre main campus is comprised of 100 administrative and residential buildings and approximately 1.44 million square feet of cleaned and maintained building space. Ancillary to the campus are the 108-acre Henry W. Hanley Biological Field Station and Preserve and The William Scandling, a floating research laboratory.

Sodexo Campus Services has enjoyed providing full facilities service to the Colleges' students, faculty, staff, and administration employees since August of 1988. Our responsibilities include maintenance, custodial, grounds services, construction project management, and programs support. Our goals are met through the combined efforts and teamwork of our employees, including housekeepers, maintenance workers, groundskeepers, and administrative personnel.
