Housing options at FC vary depending on the age or year of the student. Freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus, unless they have reached 21 years of age or have been out of high school for more than two years. Upper-division students have their choice of living on or off campus and receive special benefits, such as no curfew and a private room at the same cost as living with a roommate (should they choose dorm life). FC's four dorms differ in age, space, and cost, as well as personality. The biggest and most expensive of the dorms, Boswell (the men's dorm) and Terrace (one of the three women's dorms), were finished in 2008 and are both divided into suites. Each suite has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a common room. Hinely, another women's dorm, is also divided into suites which include two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a large closet. The oldest building on campus, Sutton Hall, is also the cheapest and smallest of the dorm options for women. Each room in Sutton comes with a small private bathroom and closet, moveable furniture, and its own personality. All of the dorms are equipped with laundry rooms, while both Terrace and Boswell also include a weight room and kitchen.
While living in an apartment has its benefits of more space and freedom, as well as the ability to cook one's own food, on-campus life has its own advantages, too. Living in the dorms allows students more opportunities to interact with each other on a deeper level of intimacy, with less necessity for a personal vehicle, and shorter distances to run to get to class when sleeping through the alarm.
