Office of Residence Life


Welcome to the residence halls at Fairleigh Dickinson University on the Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck, New Jersey, your home away from home! Our residence halls are an exciting and vibrant part of campus life. Living on campus affords you the opportunity to become part of a close-knit community bonded through socializing, shared experiences, and FDU Knight pride.

Studies indicate that students who reside on campus, on average, earn higher grades, are more likely to continue in college, and are more likely to graduate within four years.

You will have the opportunity to “live, learn, and grow” through the unique experience of living with other students. You will learn new things about yourself, about living with others, and about being part of a community. We believe your experience in the residence halls will prove to be both enjoyable and enriching.

The staff of the Office of Residence Life is committed to assisting you in making the most of your living experience and supporting you in achieving your educational goals. I encourage you to be an active member of your community and I look forward to meeting each of you during the course of the academic year.

If we can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to visit or contact our office at (201) 692-2250. We are located in the small tan house across the parking lot from Public Safety.
