Your Housing Options

Students can explore a wide range of options for living on FSU’s campus:

  • On-campus housing, including an apartment complex right on campus
  • Special living and learning opportunities for new student residents

On-campus housing

Frostburg has a variety of on-campus housing options, from traditional and high-rise residence halls to on-campus, apartment living in Edgewood Commons. Click on the links below for a closer look at each hall and the free amenities they feature.













Special interest communities

New on-campus students can choose to join a special interest community. These living/learning communities are a great way to get connected with people who share your passions and with resources that help you get to where you want to be. FSU’s communities range from freshmen adjusting to life on campus, to scholars immersing themselves in their field of study, to citizen leaders helping to make the world a better place. Check to see if one of FSU’s resident communities might have something special to offer you!
