    The Fairman Centre

    Rooms in the Fairman Centre

    Located in a newly renovated historic building in downtown Punxsutawney, the Fairman Centre houses classrooms and a residential living area exclusively for culinary students. High ceilings, tall windows, and stained glass are some of the features from the original building that were preserved in the renovation and incorporated into the residential housing design.

    Residential rooms in the Fairman Centre are semi-suites in which two students share one bedroom. All semi-suites have a microwave, compact refrigerator, and one bathroom.

    Fairman residents also have use of a resident-only common area with a full-size refrigerator, couches, table and chairs, flat-screen TV, computer, restroom, and vending area.

    Residential units in both buildings include the following amenities:
