First-Generation Forward Affinity Housing

First-Generation Forward Affinity Housing is a residential community for students that identify as first-generation and for students that support the first-generation community at Millersville University. At Millersville University, First-generation students are those students who do not have parent(s) or guardian(s) that have completed a bachelor’s degree in the United States.

The First-Generation Forward Affinity Housing community is designed to promote academic, residential, and interpersonal success by providing opportunities for students to connect with their peers and community, increased faculty, and staff interaction, as well as intentional programming efforts that include enrichment experiences that occur on and off campus. This community is also designed to celebrate each student’s background, successes, and lived experiences as they navigate their journey at Millersville University.

Examples of activities:

  • First-Generation Networking opportunities
  • Financial Wellness workshops
  • First-Generation Celebratory events in November
  • Cultural, social, and educational activities that occur on and off campus.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the community is filled.
