Housing & Residential Services

We're creating a vibrant on-campus living experience for you.
Housing Banner (revised)

We're here to support you in finding your fit and sense of belonging! We cultivate an environment that facilitates the “adulting” process inclusive of personal and professional development.

We understand that during these uncertain times,  students wanting to live on campus might be financially challenged to do so. Because of this identified need, Fitchburg State has made available approximately $500,000 in support of student residential living.  

If you have already received your financial aid package but still cannot afford on-campus housing, visit Financial Aid and complete an appeal using our special circumstances form



Living on Campus

There's a place for everyone. Find yours! Whether you want to see your living options or find the occupancy agreement and rates, we've got you covered!

Residential Learning Communities (RLCs)

The foundation of these communities are grounded through a shared interest with a common goal, to support each member’s success as they have defined it for themselves.

You may also wish to reference our Parking Services page for more information about where to park on campus.

Get in Touch!

Let us answer any questions you might have! Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We're located in the lower level of Aubuchon Hall, north side entrance (right side of the building).

Shuttle service will be limited to one circuit of the campus per hour, 7am to 6:30pm Monday - Friday.  There will be no service outside these hours.

At the times noted below the shuttle will arrive at the Intermodal Center on Main Street to begin the Rt 4/North Street Route:
