About Us

Smith Apartments

“Personalized service is our specialty!”

Smith Apartments is a family-owned and managed company that was started in 1958 by our parents, Paul and Ruth Smith.  We began with just one 8-unit apartment building on the corner of Second and Armory on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign.  We have now grown to 15 buildings with 200 units in the Champaign-Urbana area.  As our facilities have grown, so has our reputation!

We celebrate that we have been able to provide safe, clean, comfortable, affordable housing for university students and others in the community for 60 years.  We look forward to continuing to serve our residents in the Twin Cities.
