The FSC Housing Committee discusses issues related to housing for faculty and monitors University policies and practices that affect faculty in University housing. The Committee often works with the Office of Faculty Housing to discuss issues, concerns, and questions. The Office of Faculty Housing works directly with faculty, senior staff, the deans, department chairs and other University constituents on all housing matters. The office assigns housing units, sets lease terms, manages residential facilities and construction, and oversees homeownership programs.
