HOUSING SELECTION

Theme House

On-Campus Housing Selection

At Hobart and William Smith Colleges, we believe that part of attending a residential college is living on-campus with other students and encountering new experiences.

First-Year Students: We house first-year students based on their selected First-Year Seminar course. Additionally, we strive to house first-year students with others of similar interests – helping their transition to college be as fruitful and comfortable as possible.

Upperclass Students: We believe that these students deserve to have a say in their housing. Every year, we provide a housing selection process for all returning students. Through an application process, students sign up to select a room from available spaces throughout our various housing options. Additional information regarding the various selection processes can be found below.

Housing Options: We recognize the importance of providing housing options that meet the needs of our diverse student population. Our residential facilities provide a variety of options including, single-gender and co-educational housing. We also provide a Gender Inclusive Housing process which allows students to live with other students of another gender(s) in any co-ed residential location.
