Living in FYC Village
As a First Year College student you'll have the opportunity to live in the award winning FYC Village, if you choose to live on campus, and complete your housing application early.
You'll have access to our award-winning programming and you'll even be more likely to succeed academically (we have years of assessment data showing that FYC Village residents outperform students living off campus at University Towers or other apartment complexes).
applying for housing
If you choose to live on campus, you will be placed in the FYC Village when you apply for housing.
You can request a non-FYC roommate to live with you in the FYC Village through our Exception Request process. You will need your intended roommate’s name and student ID number. If space is available after the May 1 deadline, FYC will work with University Housing on your behalf for the non-FYC student to be accommodated in the Village as a preferred roommate. Priority will be given to requests in the order received.
Also submit the Exception Request if you are planning to live on campus but would prefer to live in one of the other great Villages at NC State.
All Exception Requests must be submitted on-line by April 30.
Overview of the fyc village
The First Year College Village continues to thrive and grow at NC State. The FYC Village houses the largest number of Village students on campus, the only all-freshman community, and offers great services and additional staff support, including Resident Mentors (RM’s).
RM’s work with the Resident Advisors in the halls and serve as Teaching Assistants in select sections of our USC classes; they also coordinate academic workshops in the residence hall through the PAWS series. The Village hosts special programs that include Friday night trips to the BTI Center for the Performing Arts for live performances (past trips have included The Music Man, Camelot, and Jesus Christ Superstar); dinner discussions that include a catered meal followed by a discussion about a current event such as politics, religion or affirmative action; and monthly meals with our Faculty Fellows.
Students who live in the FYC Village also benefit from access to linked First Year Inquiry (FYI) courses. This FYI course, taught by an experienced faculty member, meets a General Education Requirement and is linked to one of our USC 101 sections, which is taught by an FYC Advisor. Past courses have included "Early American History," "Controversial Issues in Psychology," "Environmental Ethics" and many more.
Years of data-driven assessment have shown that our students in the Village outperform students living off campus. We've also found that students have statistically significant greater GPA’s and complete more academic hours than non-Village students. These trends even continue into the students' subsequent years at NC State.
In addition to Tucker and Owen Residence Halls, the Village includes The FYC Commons Building, completed in May 2007. First Year College offices occupy the second floor, and our classrooms are located on the first floor. University Housing occupies the first floor and hosts the TOTA 24-hour service desk and computer lab. The third floor houses Study Abroad.
We are very proud of our program. We look forward to having you join us.
