4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Love my suite in Aubuchon. Living with some of my close friends I met my freshman year in Fitchburg State. They frequently maintain the dorms in the building. The only thing I would have to say that was bad about the buildings are the guest policies. You have to sign guests in if they live in a different building and if they don't go to the school they must bring a state ID or license.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the most part housing at Fitchburg State is wonderful, but rather expensive. As a freshman you get crammed into a forced triple the size of a single at other parts of the campus. Additionally, to live in a nontraditional dorm, a townhouse for example, you must first be lucky with a lottery number, but also have the extra cash to pay for the 600$ a semester difference.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Lots of options for housing on campus. There's traditional dorms, suites, and apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've lived in both Aubuchon and Herlihy, with Herlihy being my preferred of the two. The rooms are spacious and bright with huge windows, and it's connected to the dining hall so you never have to go outside during the winter to eat.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love being on campus and having a sense of independence away from home

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The residential halls are a very social place on campus. Russell Towers is one of the most social because it is an open-suite style, meaning the towers are all connected by a common room and none of the doors in the hallways require a lock. Any student can walk past your room and say "Hello" if you leave your door open. Each residence hall also has common rooms on each floor and a larger common room on the first floor. Many students take advantage of these rooms to socialize with friends, do homework, or watch sporting events on the weekends.

Herlihy Hall is mostly upperclassmen and is very hard to get into if you have never lived in the building before. It is the most desired hall to live in because the rooms are the biggest on campus and the building has a 24-hour courtesy rule. The courtesy rule doesn't mean quiet hours, but it does mean to respect your neighbors and not let the noise get too loud into the hallways.
