Housing is only available on the Gainesville Campus. Living on campus in the Residence Halls can greatly enhance a student's collegiate experiences—not only through participation in on-campus activities but also through learning to live in a community setting. The staff members in the Residence Halls are there "twenty-four-seven" to assist the students and meet their needs. Residence Life has many advantages for students who are straight out of high school or for students returning to college after taking a number of years off. The residence life experience enables students to be independent while teaching valuable life lessons in a safe environment.
