Note: All housing rental fees are established by Florida State University and are subject to approval by the State Board of Education. University Housing is a self-supporting auxiliary, and rental rates must reflect operating costs.

Contracts

Upon notice of admission, students receive information about housing which includes information about how to submit a housing contract electronically. The contract is available at https://housing.fsu.edu.

As space is limited, interested students are urged to submit their contract and advance payment as quickly as possible. Assignments are made on a priority basis: 1) returning residents–based on the number of completed credit hours on file with the Office of the University Registrar, and 2) all new residents–based on the date the contract is submitted. No guarantee can be given that specific room or hall preferences can be met.

The Housing Contract for residence hall students is for the contract period for the semester(s) for which the student contracts. All students who submit the Housing Contract and enroll in the University are rent obligated for the period of the contract. Academic year contracts include both Fall and Spring semesters and are not eligible for cancellation except as stated in the contract terms and conditions.

Special Living Units

Although no student is required to reside in University housing facilities, entering freshmen are encouraged to do so to avail themselves of the opportunities provided by the University Housing staff. University Housing has developed a housing program that is committed to providing a comfortable environment that promotes and supports the educational mission of the University. Great effort is taken to provide students with a variety of alternatives and choices in residence hall living.

In addition to its variety of facilities, University Housing is committed to providing students with a wide range of activities and programs that are designed for their needs. Full-time student affairs professionals, graduate assistants, and student staff reside within the halls both to assist residents with academic and interpersonal problems and to organize social, recreational, and educational events. Residents are encouraged to be active in their communities through their hall governments.

Several special living units help to develop a sense of community among their residents. Here students join together to share personal and academic interests. Students admitted to the FSU Honors Program receive priority for assignment to Landis Hall, where staff and residents share a commitment to the honors program. Ten living-learning communities (LLCs) are housed in residence halls across campus. These LLCs are designed to help students succeed during the critical first year of college.

For additional information about special programs, please visit the University Housing Website at https://housing.fsu.edu.
