Smith Hall

Exterior of Smith Hall

Smith Hall is located on the edge of campus, a short walk to the Elaine Langone Center, the 7th Street Café, the Kenneth Langone Athletics & Recreation Center, and Lewisburg's thriving downtown.

Home to about 275 first-year students, Smith is a three-story building containing a mix of double and triple rooms, common spaces, seminar and study rooms, TV lounges, kitchens and laundry facilities. Smith Hall was named to honor significant contributions by Robert E. '39 and Margaret A. '40 Smith.

Smith also houses first-year students in our Residential Colleges — Bucknell's signature living and learning experience where students live in one of our themed communities.
