Family Resource Center (FRC)

This is a space for families in the village to come together and be in community with one another. It is home to our community library and children’s library. You are welcome to study in this space but it is not a quiet zone. The FRC is also a space where many events take place like community game nights, sunday dinners, support groups, and much more. 

Please note: minors (persons under 18 years old) are not allowed to be in the space unaccompanied.

This space can only be reserved for Graduate & Family Living events,
residents may use the space on a first come, first served basis and
can not reserve the space in advance for personal use.
