We're creating a vibrant on-campus living experience for you.

We're here to support you in finding your fit and sense of belonging! We cultivate an environment that facilitates the “adulting” process inclusive of personal and professional development.

Learn more about the benefits of living on campus

We understand that during these uncertain times, students wanting to live on campus might be financially challenged to do so. Because of this identified need, Fitchburg State has made available approximately $500,000 in support of student residential living.

If you have already received your financial aid package but still cannot afford on-campus housing, visit Financial Aid and complete an appeal using our special circumstances form.
