Jo Smith Hall was originally constructed in 1972 and serves as Main Campus’ only all-women’s residence. Jo Smith is a traditional residence hall with all the amenities; a large common entryway and building lounge, a basement vending area and TV lounge and a kitchenette/study lounge on each of the seven floors. Jo Smith houses 90 women and tends to attract many upper-class (sophomore and junior) students; space for 1st year women is available but limited.

Each floor is arranged in a traditional central-hallway style configuration, with all residents sharing the common hallway and bathroom. Each floor is home to 18 students and 1 undergraduate Resident Assistant. The entire complex is administered by the Jo Smith Resident Director, an undergraduate member of the Student Affairs Staff. The residence hall staff provides numerous opportunities for involvement in campus life and are available to assist students with all aspects of residence hall living.

Individual rooms sleep two students and are 12’ wide by 14’2´deep. Each room comes completely furnished and is carpeted and air conditioned. Every room is assigned a discreet phone line that provides local access and a pass-code for long-distance calls can be obtained from the Bursar’s Office (students must provide a phone for the room). The College supplies basic cable TV service to each student room.

Each student has direct access to the college computer network for data storage and internet connection (there are two data ports in the room). Specific information regarding the campus network, computing resources and recommended system requirements can be found on the MC CIT Website.

Jo Smith Hall has a number of other student resources located with in the building. In the basement lounge, there is bicycle storage and a TV lounge that gets a lot of use for both lounging and meetings. Finally, the front of the complex faces the Main Campus Quad (shown above) and is a good place to hang out and enjoy the outdoors.
