Living on Campus

F&M's College Houses are more than merely places to hang out, sleep and study. They are places to acquire and hone leadership and collaboration skills as the members of each house decide their own government structure, craft a constitution, elect leaders, discuss and plan house-sponsored events, determine how the house's substantial annual budget will be spent, and generally take charge of all the other who, what, when, why and hows of their particular collective on campus. And to help fuel all of that activity, Campus Dining provides an innovative and appealing dining services program featuring great food, honest values, and comfortable settings in a variety of locations all within easy walking distance of practically any spot on campus (and many nearby off-campus places, too!).

College Houses

A distinctive feature of the Franklin & Marshall experience is the College House residential community. These are not run-of-the-mill dormitories, but lively hubs of intellectual, extracurricular and social engagement governed by the students who live there.
