Living near campus makes everything easier. You save money on transportation, you save time due to shorter commutes, and you have the convenience of knowing most everything you need is just a few blocks away. There are three apartment communities in particular that are located very close to the FAMU classes. FAMU students looking for a place to live that's close to campus should check out each of these options before moving into a new Tallahassee apartment.
The Cottages at Magnolia is just a few block from the FAMU campus – on East Magnolia Drive near the intersection with South Gadsden Street.
