Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center


Welcome to the Smith Campus Center!

Upon completion, this new Campus Center will be a dynamic center of University life, enabling the greater Harvard community to come together in new and exciting ways. It will serve as a welcoming and vibrant entrance to the University for visitors and the Cambridge community.  The design includes flexible indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, meeting and event spaces, lounge and study areas, a wide variety of food options, as well as space for exhibitions, events and performances. The transformation of the lower floors of the building will include dramatic interior landscaping and walls of glass, which will provide an abundance of natural light. 

The Smith Campus Center is scheduled to open in 2018 and is named for its major donors, Richard A. and Susan F. Smith. It is part of a multiyear effort to create and improve common spaces across the University as a way to ensure its physical spaces foster the  intellectual, cultural, and social experience.
