Living at Furman

When you arrive at Furman, the first thing you'll notice is our welcoming environment. Whether you're outgoing or more reserved, you'll make friends easily because we have a way of pulling everyone in. Our students all live together on our residential campus. That helps create a sense of family.

You'll live on our campus during your time at Furman—right in the center of it all. We have 12 residence halls, ranging from four-person suites to traditional dormitories. Some of our residence halls are coed, but men and women live on different floors with separate bath facilities.

If you're a first-year student, you'll be paired with a roommate in one of seven freshman residence halls. Our detailed questionnaire helps us match you with someone who has similar interests, a process that has proved very successful. Not knowing your roommate may seem intimidating at first, but it's a great way to meet new friends and get involved in new activities. Though you'll have the option to choose your roommate as a sophomore, many students end up keeping their same roommate from the beginning to the end of their academic careers.

At Furman, the liberal arts is the common stream that runs through everything we do. In fact, even our opportunities for housing have a liberal arts component. From eco-friendly cabins that teach you about sustainable living to language houses in which you can immerse yourself in a foreign culture, your housing reflects who you are and lets you meet people who share your interests. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in the Engaged Living program, where you and your hallmates take a class together, live together, have fun together, and get to know the Furman community.
