Housing & Residence Life

Living on campus is one of the best decisions a student can make, and campus life at Francis Marion is like none other. Housing and Residence Life at FMU promotes student success by providing modern, attractive facilities in a safe and beautiful environment. Student housing is more than just a place for sleeping and storing books. It becomes the student's home, the place they will spend most of their time. That is why we work hard to make sure our facilities are inviting, comfortable, and safe places to live and learn.

FMU offers the students who wish to live on campus several options designed to meet their needs as they successfully progress through their academic careers. Freshmen may choose to live in our residence halls where they will share a room with another student. These rooms are arranged in a suite arrangement with two rooms connected by a shared bath. Sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students may live in the residence halls or choose an apartment. The apartments offer a variety of choices – one, two or four bedroom units. In the apartments, students share living/dining areas, bath and kitchen facilities. Assignments to campus housing are made according to eligibility, application date, and availability.

Residence Hall Linen and College Bedding Program

Here’s a convenient way to get everything you need for your residence hall room or apartment, especially the XL sheets needed for all beds except those in the Forest Villas Apartments. Visit Our Campus Market to view our full selection of colors and patterns and to place your order.


Francis Marion University has been offering the Residence Hall Linens program since 1993. Students at Francis Marion University require specially-sized sheets, mattress pads and comforters to fit campus mattresses. These beds, which are longer than 76 inches, are intended to maximize student comfort.

When you reserve your college bedding through this program, you ensure the right size linens for move-in. The selection is larger than you will find anywhere else, at prices that are budget-friendly. Best of all, every product available through this program is guaranteed to fit and guaranteed to last from move-in all the way to graduation. Extra-long sheets, extra-long mattress pads, extra-long comforters, pillows, décor and storage solutions and all other products are backed by this guarantee.


We recommend that parents and students respond early, in order to have the widest selection of college bedding to choose from. You will guarantee your first choice color or pattern and make great progress on your college shopping checklist.
