Farside is one of three (3) residence halls that serve our freshmen living community, housing approximately 225 first-year residents.  Farside has mostly double style rooms with community style bathrooms – shared between 15-20 students; most bathrooms have 2 shower stalls, 2 toilet stalls and 3 sinks.  Renovations are hoping to install 1 hand dryer per bathroom.  Additionally, Farside has some singles, occasional designed triples and some suite-style rooms; most of these suites offer residents a private bathroom and/or a common area shared by all occupants of their suite.

Farside has a large lounge on the 1st floor of the building, as well as another on the lower-level.  Additionally, several small offices, group study, and social lounges that are well spread throughout the entire building for use by all residents.

The entire building was completely renovated and completed in the summer of 2015 – this included new bathrooms, updated furniture, lighting, flooring and heating units.  Additionally, in the summer of 2018, new window shades were installed. 

Depending on need, Farside will offer a Quiet Floor Housing option, located on the first floor of F-wing.
