Housing & Residence Life
Your Fairmont State University residence hall isn’t just where you’ll hit the hay at the end of the day, it’s a place where you will live your best life. It truly is your new home away from home. And, unlike many other universities, incoming first-year students aren’t relegated to one or two halls – as a freshman, you may choose to live in any of our residence halls.
Greek Life activities
