Fairhaven students may live wherever they choose both on and off campus. While most first-year students choose to live on campus, the majority of Fairhaven College students live off-campus in the Bellingham community.  If you are interested in living on campus, you must apply through University Residences

Students admitted to Fairhaven have the option of living in a residence hall community with other Fairhaven students in the FAIRHAVEN HOUSING CLUSTER located in the adjacent Fairhaven Complex. This cluster provides students who are interested in making connections with other students concerned about the environment, education, community service and social justice an opportunity to create community through a living-learning experience. While living in the Fairhaven Housing Cluster is not a requirement for Fairhaven students, it is not an automatic placement. You must indicate your interest in the Fairhaven Cluster on your Housing Application through University Residences to be considered for this housing assignment.
