FCI Morgantown

Number of prisoners: 1,299
Location, Morgantown, W.Va.

FCI Morgantown is a stand-alone prison camp in the college town of Morgantown, W.Va. — home to West Virginia University. While it started out as the Robert F. Kennedy Youth Correctional Facility, it now houses minimum-security adult males. Inmates looking to better themselves may get an associate of arts degree in business administration from Fairmont State College.

There are also apprenticeships available in commercial photography, computer technology, and plumbing. For those looking to blow off some steam, there is foosball, pingpong, and bumper-pool tables.

“This is a well-run facility,” Ellis said.
