If you decide to live on campus at Friends you will not regret it! Every resident building is with in all walking distances to any buildings you may have class in. All the resident halls I have been in are well kept and clean. The rooms in Smith are a little smaller and most of the sinks in all the kitchens in any of the res halls are too small. If you are willing to get over small sinks, I assure you living on campus will be worth your time. There is no commute in the busy city of Wichita and you are so close to all of your classmates, teammates, coworkers, and most importantly friends!

I love Friends University and all that is has to offer. I have had many fun experiences with my sport, events on campus, and evening living on campus. I really think that living on campus has helped with my positive experience here at Friends. I have made so many friendships with people from all over! Friends is unique with the fact that we have more fine art students than we have athletes, we are a smaller institution which makes for more friendships, and we provide a fun and safe learning environment for all students.

Very good security, lots of current and retired police officers working for the security office. Well-lit and safe neighborhood. Just don't leave your bike out overnight!
