FDU's Florham Campus is in Morris County, New Jersey, bridging the towns of Florham Park and Madison. The campus consists of 178 acres, part of Florham, a former country estate of early 20th-century socialites Florence Vanderbilt and Hamilton Twombly. Florham is a contraction of the first names of the couple. FDU has owned the campus since 1958.
FDU Florham is primarily a residential campus, supported by a strong student life program. It boasts active fraternities and sororities, diverse student activities, and dynamic Division III and intramural athletics programs. Resident students are joined in class by undergraduate commuters and by adult, graduate, and certificate students, utilizing first-class educational resources either retrofitted into the campus' distinctive and appealing original buildings, or newly built especially in the most recent decades.
