The Department of Housing & Residential Education is anticipating substantial demand for housing for the fall 2023 - spring 2024 academic year. Therefore, we have made a decision to limit the number of current residents who can return for next academic year. In the event that we receive more contracts during the contract renewal process, we will prioritize contracts in the following order:

  • All first-year students who entered FAU during summer and fall 2022 or spring 2023
  • Students who started during 2021, first year students who started spring 2022, and transfer students who started during 2022 or 2023
  • Students who started during 2020
  • Students who started 2019 or later
  • Graduate students and 2nd bachelor degree seeking students

Students who renew their housing contract will receive their assignment notification on February 27.  Students will have until March 3, 2023 at 5 p.m. to cancel their housing contract and housing assignment without penalty and without cause if they choose to do so. After March 3, the Terms and Conditions of the Housing Contract will apply and all cancellation requests must meet the cancellation conditions outlined in Section 11 of the Housing contract Terms and Conditions. Some students may not receive a housing assignment on February 27, and will be notified if they are waitlisted.  More information will be provided to those students who are waitlisted in their waitlist notification letter.  

Housing options for returning students have changed. Rental rates will not increase for the upcoming academic year. You can review room rates here. The following housing options are available for returning students for Fall 2023 – Spring 2024:
