The Arts House is a living and learning community dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the fine arts through workshops, showcases, performances and other methods of artistic expression. The Arts house strives to provide a welcoming environment for the academic and non-academic artists of Franklin and Marshall. Through the universal language of performance we seek to foster a true celebration of all forms of artistic expression for our larger communities and ourselves and to create an artistic experience unique from the classroom. The aim of the Arts House is to not only create a non-academic artistic community but to also facilitate the exchange of different forms of artistic expression amongst our residents and our campus community. The location is 602/604 W. James. There are six single bedrooms (one bedroom will be occupied by the housing coordinator) in 602 W. James. There are seven additional single bedrooms in 604 W. James.

The International House functions as the epicenter of international student life at Franklin & Marshall. We firmly believe in the college's mission to explore the cultural world in which we live in a deep and meaningful way by hosting a multitude of activities on campus. The members of the International House aspire to contribute positively to our community by sharing the enriching experiences that many of our residents have had. We firmly believe that the students in the International House should be committed to fostering a sense of internationalism within and beyond the walls of the house. Furthermore, the International House, in conjunction with other multicultural clubs on campus, seeks to promote and celebrate diversity by facilitating various events. The House should also serve as a forum for debates and discussions about pertinent issues, whether they be situated in our local F&M setting, or in a broader global context. We hope to see these programs culminate in an overall increase in interest and integration between the international and American students on campus such that new heights of international understanding are reached. The location is 446-448 W. James Street and there are 12 single bedrooms (one bedroom will be occupied by the housing coordinator). All rooms in the International house are full-sized beds.
Beginning Fall 2013, students living in the International house (JSP) will be billed a $500 security deposit for potential damages to the bedroom/unit.
