New Students: Room assignments for new students are generally made in chronological order relative to the dates on which housing applications are received by the college. New students will be placed in housing set aside for new students. In order to maximize their residential experience, freshmen are required to have roommates during their first semester on campus.
The residence life staff begins processing new student room assignments in mid-May. Initial notification of a student's room and roommate assignment, inclusive of the roommate's name, address and phone number, are mailed and processed beginning on or around June 1. Roommate assignments are made using information and interests noted on the Housing Application submitted to residence life. If a student wishes to request a roommate, those requests will be honored if both individuals mutually request one another. For those students who have been admitted to Franklin College and intend to enroll, the housing application can be found with the enrollment information at https://myfc.franklincollege.edu in the admitted students area. The information will be on the right side of the screen.
Continuing Students: Room selection for continuing students occurs during each spring semester for the following academic year. All students must be registered full-time for the upcoming fall semester and in good financial standing with the college. Students must complete, sign and return a room and board application before they may select or be assigned to a particular room. Priority for room selection is determined by class standing and lottery number as outlined in the procedures published and distributed in advance.
