Housing Application

When you submit your enrollment deposit, you’ll be invited to share your housing preferences (room type, building, roommate(s)) on our New Student Enrollment Form. We guarantee housing for all students, so while you need not worry about securing a living space on campus, we do encourage you to enroll and complete your housing application (New Student Enrollment Form) as soon as you’ve made the decision to attend FSC.

Complete the new student enrollment Form

Choosing a Roommate

We give you the option to choose your roommate, but don’t feel pressure to do so! We’ll use the preferences you’ve shared to pair you with someone we believe has similar lifestyle choices and interests. But, if you’ve met or know another incoming student(s), you can request to live with one another. On the New Student Enrollment Form, simply answer ‘yes’ to the question, "Do you have a preferred roommate?" Then, you’ll see the roommate preferences section; you’ll need their name and FSC ID—and they’ll need to request you as well!
