Field Trips:

Five College Compliance & Risk Management has developed a domestic field trip guide to assist college faculty and staff who wish to take students off-campus.

Roof Access

For two Science Center buildings – Ford Hall and McConnell Hall — roofs hold special features and facilities. Our access policy treats these spaces as if they are labs: access is controlled, but available to those with legitimate reasons to visit them, provided certain safety precautions are followed. For the remaining three of the five Science Center buildings (Bass, Sabin-Reed, Burton Halls), the only reason to access the roof is for building or equipment maintenance. Therefore, access to these three roofs is limited and controlled by Facilities Management.

Small Airborne Objects (SAOs):

Smith College employees and students planning to fly small airborne objects must comply with relevant federal, state, and local laws and regulations pertaining to the operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Smith’s UAS/Drone Policy can be found here.
