Living on campus in one of the residences is an integral part of the Franklin experience. It enriches not only your connection to your peers, but also plays a vital role in your academic involvement. Living in the residence halls provides your first taste of independence. You have the opportunity to cook for yourself, as most apartments have kitchenettes or a common kitchen for the whole residence. Your space will become home each time you return from a long day of classes, travels, or even a trip to the grocery store.

There are seven residence halls at Franklin, and each is staffed by at least one trained student leader called a Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are your go-to person if you need help or have questions in the residence halls. To find out more about RAs and how they support students, see the page on Resident Assistants.

Remember that living on campus means living in shared spaces; while you will be independent, it’s important to be respectful to everyone and everything around you. To live on campus, you’ll need to read and sign the Housing Agreement, as well as follow the Code of Conduct. The rules are there so everyone can focus on their studies, do their best in classes and respect community rules and norms, both on- and off-campus.
