Smith Hall, based on student reviews, is a residence hall that can provide a varied experience depending on a bit of luck with room assignments. Some found the accommodations cozy and enjoyed the sense of community Smith Hall cultivates, with convenient amenities such as vending machines and study areas. However, others felt that certain rooms were cramped, such as the forced doubles which are actually single rooms, with limited personal space. Concerns were expressed regarding the hall's cleanliness and maintenance. Reports of occasional mice and cockroach sightings were noted, suggesting that prompt action could be required to address the issue. That said, the communal bathrooms were typically viewed as a positive aspect due to their daily cleaning. The hall's location provides easy access to dining halls, classrooms, and recreational areas, while the common areas facilitate socializing and studying. The quality of the amenity infrastructure varies, with some older gaming tables needing upgrades. All of these factors contribute to an experience that can range from comfortable to challenging, depending on individual circumstances.

Room situation is really a gamble. Me and my roommate got a forced double and if we didn’t become best friends it wouldn’t be livable with a random person. There is no room for personal space. Aside from this, there are mice that take over the first floor. They go in and out of the cracks of the do...

Cozy room, but no ac. Put into a forced triple, while others got a double to themselves. Very much a lottery on how nice your room is, as some rooms have multiple closets, while my roommates and I share a single closet. Despite the cleaning times being posted outside, the bathrooms are rarely cleane...

I had an economy triple, the size of the room was ok, but everything is super old and falling apart.

My roommate and I got an economy double, and it was honestly a forced single room. Other than that, I do enjoy the coziness of Smith Hall because I got to know a lot of other CS majors. It is a smaller residence hall compared to Steast or Stwest, so I feel like there was more of a community; I got c...

I loved Smith. There was a large study room in the basement and 2 other "all purpose rooms", one with the large TV. The setup of the building is a little odd but there was also a nice table on every floor with a booth and chairs which was great for doing homework at. My room was fine. pretty standar...

I got one of the doubles that used to be a triple, and there was so much space. There were three closets and the room itself was big enough to have six people fit comfortably. The elevator is very slow but I lived on the first floor so it wasn’t a huge deal, and the study lounges are great for getti...

My roommate and I had an economy double (which we didn’t ask for and would’ve been happy to pay a few hundred dollars more for a livable room) and had no idea what to expect because all of the economy doubles range immensely in size. When I first got there, I thought I was being punked. Our room was...

Lived in an economy-double with lofted beds above our desks, and it felt especially cramped compared to a standard double; when 3 or 4 people are in the room at once it already feels very crowded. Overall its comfortable enough to live in if you don't plan on having many guests, and we even had room...

I would say my room was a standard room size in smith, it came with unlofted beds but the flooring was uneven and stuff kept falling of my desk, so my roommate and I lofted our beds and we had a lot of space. We had a tiny tiny walk in with hooks and a hanging rack. I lived on the first floor and be...

I lived in one of the biggest doubles that used to be a triple so my room was definitely an anomaly of the smith hall rooms because a lot of the doubles are TINY. I didn't loft my bed and neither did my roommate, we also had a small walk-in closet. Walls are THIN but they're thin in like every fresh...
