Smyth-Fernwald Residential Complex

Smyth-Fernwald Community Center Smyth-Fernwald apartments Smyth-Fernwald, University-owned housing for student families, lies at the top of Dwight Way, along the Hayward Fault. Smyth-Fernwald playground The entire complex is built on the slopes of the fault scarp, and the playground and multi-purpose building just west of Dwight sit just above the fault trace. While the eastern section of the building has been abandoned, the western section is still used for offices and as a community center. Due to safety concerns and structural damage from creep, several buildings in the complex just south of the multi-purpose building were demolished in 1999, and an empty field was left in their place.
