Originally founded as two separate colleges (Hobart for men in 1822 and William Smith for women in 1908), HWS now operates under a coordinate college system. All students share the same campus, faculty, administration, and curriculum. Each college maintains its own traditions, deans, student government, and athletic department. Men graduate from Hobart College. Women graduate from William Smith College. Its 200-acre combined campus is located in Geneva.
