Important Tips for Prospective Students:

  • Spaces are limited and fill up quickly, so sign up early. Housing assignments
  • Housing placement is prioritized to students who are outside of 30 miles from campus and are required to reside on-campus. Students who are from within 30 miles of the Boca Raton campus will be assigned housing after all students who are not from a commutable distance have been assigned.
  • There are very few single rooms, and we cannot guarantee single rooms for everyone who makes the request. The earlier you sign up, the better your chances will be to get your priority building or room type.
  • The housing contract covers only the Spring semester; you are responsible for the term of the contract.
  • Students living in the residence halls are required to participate in the Campus Meal Plan Program. For information, please visit our Dining Services page.
  • If you plan to request special housing considerations based upon a disability or health concern, you must register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). In order to register, you must submit an SAS Application for Support Services and appropriate documentation of your disability. You must have registered with SAS by November 1 for Spring, May 1 for Summer and June 1 in order for your request to be considered.
