Faculty Program Requirements
Student Program Requirements
Our program does not provide funding for off-site housing. This includes faculty who may already have housing in Ames. We believe part of the overall VFP experience is the growth experience provided by having our visiting faculty live in on-campus apartments during our programs. We feel the sharing of information and the camaraderie that comes from after-hours interactions is a valuable take-away--one that can last a lifetime. We do not mandate that faculty live in provided housing during their internship, but our program will not fund off-site housing. Please do not ask us to make a concession for you.
Faculty Apartment Parking
Faculty Move-in Days: Saturday, Sunday and Monday (May 23, 24 or 25) have been designated as move-in days. Watch your email or access online calendar (above) for additional information.
Student Intern Housing
Alcoholic beverages may be consumed in the privacy of a Frederiksen Court apartment if individuals are age twenty-one or older. Smoking is prohibited on all university grounds, including parking lots, and in all university-owned or operated buildings, residence halls and apartments.
Frederiksen Court will be staffed with live-in Community Advisors (CA’s) in the ratio of approximately 1 CA for every 200 residents. Community Advisors will serve as an information resource for program participants regarding Department and University policies and procedures. They will also enforce Department policies, such as when noise, dangerous or destructive behavior occurs. The Frederiksen Court Office, located within the Frederiksen Court Community Center also serves as a resource for guests.
Move-in Days: Saturday, Sunday and Monday (May 23, 24 and 25)
Our program does not provide funding for off-site housing. This includes students who may already have housing in Ames. We believe part of the overall VFP student experience is the growth experience provided by having our student interns live together in on-campus apartments during our internships. We feel the sharing of information and the camaraderie that comes from after-hours interactions is a valuable take-away from our program, a take-away that can last a lifetime. We do not mandate that students live in provided housing during their internship, but our program will not fund off-site housing. Please do not ask us to make a concession for you.
--On the west side of campus, the Union Drive Marketplace in the Union Drive Community Center will be the primary dining center.
