Farnham Programming Space

FPS

The newly renovated Farnham Programming Space (FPS) offers a variety of educational, social, and interactive events for all residential and commuter students. From our Residence Hall Association body meetings to the Coffee House/Open Mic Night, there are countless events in the FPS for students' enjoyment. When there is not a scheduled event, the FPS offers quiet study hours for residential students, a place to meet new people, a place to relax, or a place to simply watch TV or Reslife Cinema.

The events that take place in the FPS are strictly for the current students, faculty, and staff of SCSU.  Therefore, in order to reserve, utilize, or attend any event at the Farnham Programming Space, an individual must be a current student, faculty, or staff member.  All non-SCSU guests are not permitted to attend any program within the Programming Space.

Cooking or preparing food is not permitted inside the space. This includes Popcorn Machines, Cotton Candy Machines, etc.

Although the FPS is considered its own entity, it is still located in the basement of a residence hall. All Housing Policies still apply. You can find a comprehensive Guide to Living on Campus that contains all housing policies and procedures on the Residence Life website.
