Important Tips for Prospective Students:

  • Spaces are limited and fill up quickly, so sign up early.
  • 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 Summer 2020 term or Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 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.
  • First year students requesting a roommate for Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 must complete the roommate request by April 1. You may request one roommate and the request must be mutual. Requests are completed through the Roommate Request page of the Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 housing contract. Please note that roommate requests take priority over room type preferences (i.e. single room, double room). Roommate matching is not guaranteed; however, we will make every attempt to match roommates that are mutually requested by April 1. The date your housing contract was completed is a consideration when matching roommates.
