Friends Village

Friends Village is the perfect choice for students wanting to transition to an environment with a little more freedom while not having to think about paying separate electric, gas, water and cable bills. Friends Village features independent living within the context of our Community Life Standards so as to support what is truly important: your academics! Students must be at least sophomore status (28 earned credit hours or more) to live in Friends Village. Two well-trained resident assistants and a coordinator of student development live in the apartments to assist with housing needs. They also develop social activities to promote community.

This apartment complex houses approximately 90 students. Each apartment is carpeted and has blinds on all the windows. The apartments also have their own bathrooms and either a patio or deck. The University covers water, trash, electricity, gas, wireless network access and basic cable.

How are roommates selected?
Roommates are first assigned based on requests from the residents. If a student has no roommate preference, the Community and Residential Development staff will do their best to aid him/her in finding a compatible roommate. However, the responsibility of finding a roommate ultimately resides with the student seeking housing.

How many roommates will I have?
The Office of Community and Residential Development has a maximum and minimum number of occupants allowed in each apartment. Please contact us for more information.

How can I decorate my room?
You may decorate your room in any way you like as long as your decorations conform to Community Life Standards and housing guidelines and do not damage any part of the apartment. Nails or anything else that damages the walls are not allowed.
