Welcome to the Fairhaven community, located at the foot of the Sehome arboretum on South Campus.
Fairhaven offers students both scenic living conditions and the convenience of being close to campus life. The complex is comprised of twelve residential buildings (stacks) centered on a courtyard with a pond. Each stack faces a courtyard area, where students can relax, study by the pond, play Frisbee or enjoy a sunny day with friends. Ten out of twelve stacks have a lounge on the first floor with an adjacent TV lounge; some stack lounges also have kitchens for resident use.
Please note: you do not have to be enrolled at Fairhaven College to live in the Fairhaven residential community.
