First-Year Living and Learning Communities
Students assigned to First-Year (FY) Communities have first-year students as roommates. FY Communities are offered in both East and West residential areas, and new students are automatically assigned to these spaces until they reach capacity. The majority of new students live in FY Communities. Students living in FY Communities relocate to other floors/halls their second year.
