Student Housing at the University of Florida



The University of Florida greatly encourages students to live on campus, offering two types of facilities, serving the different needs of students. Undergraduate, single students are housed in Residence Halls, while graduate students and families live in Village Apartments. There are 29 facilities overall, which differ on floor plans, room types, rental rates, communities and educational opportunities. The university is proud to be able to accommodate all needs and preferences.

Single-student residence halls are mostly used by undergraduate students, and are traditional, suite-style and apartment-style residential buildings. Most students living in this type of accommodation are following a Bachelor’s degree, although a few number of single graduate students, who don’t have to take care of a child or family may live there, too.

The Graduate or Family housing is offered to those either following an advanced or a professional academic degree, or they have a family to take care of.
