Housing and Residential Services is excited to welcome students back this fall, whether you are returning or coming to campus for the first time. Just know that there is space and support here in the residence halls to help you succeed.

Continue to monitor your emails and the Move-in page for important updates on your arrival for the fall semester. There will be a centralized check-in process for all our residents. It is imperative that a member of the housing team completes your check-in process and will be able to answer any remaining questions you may have at that time. As you continue to #StayWithUs - together we will strive to keep our community a caring and welcoming space for all. This is truly the “Value of Living On-Campus”.

Residential Reminder

Please continue to visit our website and monitor your Fitchburg State email for current communications and future updates. 

I love the independence I've gained living away from home and the connections and experiences are incredible. I've made many friends, memories, and have become a part of the community in so many rewarding ways.
