Smith Residence Hall, which opened in 2006, is home to a blend of first-year and non-freshman residents. As a resident of Smith, you can be a part of the University's tradition of service and excellence. Smith residents can take advantage of enhanced hall services such as a new Technology Learning Center (TLC), a classroom on the first floor, an attached dining market (Newell's Deli), a private soundproof music practice room, as well as desk services. The residence hall also has a variety of room types that range from singles with private bathrooms to doubles and triples.

Smith rooms are large and equipped with walk-in closets as well as air conditioning. Some rooms even have views of downtown that catch a glimpse of the Capital building and Camp Randall Stadium if you're lucky enough. Smith is only a few blocks away from the Gordon Avenue Market, which offers more dining options. The SERF (Southeast Recreational Facility) is also nearby for workouts and intramural sports.
