Get to Know Polkinghorne Village East & West
The facility is broken into two sides, known as Polkinghorne Village East and West.
The suite-style six story hall accommodates over 800 students. As Polkinghorne Village
is located on the west side of FAMU's campus, residents can enjoy the short distance
to other popular campus locations, including the Bragg Memorial Stadium, the Student
Services Center, which includes the bookstore, and the cafe.
At Polkinghorne Village, community is everything. Participate in our diverse and eclectic
array of programming for students, including Rattlers Recycle, Book Bash, Spring Egg
Hunt and Consent is Sexy. Build a healthy and friendly competitive environment through
Battle of the Floors, a building-wide competition where each floor competes for the
