Live where you learn

The best way to experience all the benefits of the University of South Florida is to make it your home. Living on campus gives you 24-hour staff assistance and convenient access to classrooms, dining halls and fitness facilities. By joining its growing community of over 5,500 on-campus residents, it’s easy to make new friends. Studies by the National Survey of Student Engagement have shown that an active on-campus life often results in higher grade point averages and increased graduation rates.

We offer three styles of housing at USF to fit your lifestyle and budget, from apartments to suite-style living. For students who have been approved to live off campus, we have partnerships with a variety of apartment communities in the local area.

Who knows? Your next door neighbor could be your new best friend.
