An information session was held on Wednesday, November 3 at 6:30 p.m. for Smith Tower residents to learn more about the upcoming renovation. The presentation shown at the information session was recorded for any resident who was unable to make the event. All residents are encouraged to review the video to learn more about the construction project, housing options available for the spring, how to prepare for move out, and how to select into the newly renovated building for Fall 2022.
You will be given priority to choose a room in Smith Tower during the Room Selection Process before other students.1 Smith Tower is going to look amazing once the project is completed and we hope that you will want to live there again.2
All participants in the Smith Tower special selection must be former residents of Smith Tower who were assigned to Smith Tower at the opening of Fall 2021. No outside residents can be added to the process.
Updates will be very similar to the Casey Tower project (completed prior to Fall 2020). Consult the Casey Tower photo gallery to view the building renovations.
Students who are relocated due to the construction project will be guaranteed the standard double room rate (regardless of reassignment location) for the 2021-2022 academic year.
