Smith House

Smith House is located along North Washington Street between Van Horn House and Lau House.  Considered part of the Ice House Complex, Smith House was named after Marion Todd Smith '48, who was a math major and member of Chi Alpha Sigma at Gettysburg College.  Following graduation, she began a career as a micro analyst.   

Smith House is a 2-story house that houses 8 students, all in single rooms.  Smith House has a full kitchen and common space on the first floor.  There are three bathrooms in this facility, one on the first floor and two on the second floor.  All bathrooms accommodate one person at a time and are gender-neutral. There are two single bedrooms on the first floor and six on the second floor. 

The basement of Smith House contains a laundry facility that students from several nearby residence halls share.   

Each student is provided with an extra-long (38 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches) bed; a desk and chair; a dresser and closet space.  Students may contact Facilities Services at 717-337-6700 to request the additional pieces necessary to bunk their bed.  There is approximately 15 inches between the floor and the bottom of the bed.  To gain additional storage space below the bed, students may use bed risers, which are available for purchase at the College Bookstore.
