Residential Life

Living On Campus

Residence hall living can be one of the most meaningful experiences in your time at Franklin Pierce University. The time you spend in your living community with other students will provide you with many lasting memories and friendships. The Residential Life staff is here to assist you in making the transition from your home to your residence hall and then, once you have "settled in," to continue to be of assistance to you throughout your residential experience.

Student Housing

To better enhance each student's residential experience, all class levels are housed separately. This delineation is meant to promote community development within the same class standing to better meet the academic and social needs of each group. Besides living amongst peers, Residential Life and Student Activities provide community events to bridge classroom learning to residential living. This enables students to establish meaningful relationships with their peers while engaging in large or small group activities. Learn more about each area: First YearSophomoresJuniors, Senior

The FPU Student Conduct process exists to promote justice and fairness, by providing students who are accused of violating the Student Code of Conduct, and may face judicial sanctions, with an opportunity to be heard.
