FCE’s core activities are organized primarily through its centres. These institutions are set up by private individuals working together to promote cultural, social and intellectual advancement among adults and youth. The centres in many cases function as university residences which offer weekly seminars, personal counselling and community outreach activities to further enhance the personal and social context. To a great extent, they provide a family environment for students who come to study from other cities or countries. In the residences, students are helped to strive for excellence in their studies while developing true friendship and a spirit of service towards others. Students from all social, ethnic and religious backgrounds are welcome in our student residences.

FCE is presently the owner of three such residences: Fonteneige University Residence for young women, Residence Piedmont and Riverview Study Centre for young men.
