On-campus housing Fergus Falls
Looking for a place to live and connect with the community while attending M State?
Our Fergus Falls campus is one of only a few community college campuses in Minnesota with on-campus housing, so students have the convenience of living on campus along with the benefits that come with apartment life. Both College Manor and Williams Hillside Village feature apartment-style living with single bedroom options.
Our housing options include a meal plan that adds a level of convenience for students, and each apartment also has cooking facilities so students can prepare their favorite meals at home.
