Fitchburg State University will offer housing for graduate students

June 3, 2024
The university says its graduate student population has been increasing.

Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, will open its first residence hall exclusively for graduate students this fall with the reopening of an on-campus apartment building.

The Leominster Champion reports that the apartment-style residences will serve the university’s expanding graduate population, including international students. Fitchburg State had more than 400 international graduate students enrolled in on-campus classes in 2023-24.

The apartments at 185 North St. have five-bedroom units, all for single occupants in full-size beds. Laundry facilities are on site, and utilities are included in the housing cost. Unlike traditional student housing, the occupants will be able to reside on-campus year-round, including academic breaks in winter and spring.

“This opportunity enables graduate students to immerse themselves fully in the Fitchburg State community while also enjoying the convenience of on-campus living, enhancing accessibility and affordability for all,” said Fitchburg State’s Executive Director of Housing and Residential Services Matt Lechter.

The university offers other apartment-style residential options for undergraduates.
