The Fairhaven Complex consisted of 12 buildings (or "stacks") each with four floors, capable of housing 650 students (2013). The WWU web site in 2013 described the Fairhaven Complex: "Located at the foot of the Sehome arboretum, Fairhaven offers students both scenic living conditions and the convenience of being close to campus. The complex is comprised of twelve residential buildings (stacks) centered on a courtyard with a pond. Fairhaven houses residents in suites of single and double rooms that share a common bathroom, with a variety of housing options from two-bedroom suites to the larger five-bedroom suites. Some suites even have a connected balcony for residents to use. Each stack faces a courtyard area, where students can relax, study by the pond, play Frisbee or enjoy a sunny day with friends. Ten out of twelve stacks have a lounge on the first floor with an adjacent TV lounge; some stack lounges also have kitchens for resident use."
