Living on campus is a great way to make lasting memories and create lifelong friendships. Underclassmen live in Le Fer Hall and upperclassmen/graduate students live in Les Bois Hall. For more information, check out our Residence Halls page.


New students participate in Orientation the week before classes begin. This is a great time to get to know campus, connect with other new students and learn about the history and traditions of the institution. Check out the Orientation schedule for more information.

Parking Permits and Vehicle Registration

All students, faculty and staff must register their vehicle and display a current and valid SMWC parking permit in order to park in a SMWC parking lot. Permits are issued to the individual applying for the parking permit, not the vehicle. Students, faculty and staff must also comply with all traffic and parking regulations while operating a vehicle on campus.

Commuter student parking permits are $100 ($50 per semester).

Students must register for a parking permit by completing the vehicle registration form through the WoodsNet Student Hub. New permits will be distributed during student registration. For lost or stolen parking permits, you may request a new permit by contacting the Office of Public Safety.

Office of Public Safety

The Office of Public Safety is dedicated to keeping SMWC a safe place for everyone. Our officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days. From a flat tire on your car to an emergency on campus, they are here to tackle any issues that arise. To contact an officer, call 812-535-6400. In case of emergency, dial 911.
