Who is Defined as a First-Year Student
First-year students are defined as students who have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent, and have earned less than 12 semester hours of transferable college credit after high school graduation. This excludes college credits earned during high school completion through accelerated mechanisms such as IB, AICE, AP and dual enrollment classes.
A Statement on UNF's First-Year On-Campus Housing Requirement
The University of North Florida is committed to ensuring the academic and personal success of its students. In working to fulfill this commitment, over the past several years, we have learned that living in on-campus housing can make a world of difference in what our students take away from their college experience and in their success rates. The benefits of living on campus are especially significant for students who have just graduated from high school and are attending their first year of college. Research tells us that those students who live on campus during their first year:
Consistent with this perspective and to ensure the quality of the first year experience, UNFrequires all first-year students to live in on-campus housing for their first fall term and first spring term. UNF students who begin in the summer or fall term are required to live in on-campus housing during that fall term and the subsequent spring term. Students who begin the spring term will need to live in on-campus housing during that spring term and and the subsequent fall term. Summer terms are not included in this requirement.
for the full requirement details, including information regarding requesting an exemption.
For Spring 2014 all residential first-year students will reside in the
four first-year housing areas: Osprey Hall, Osprey Landing, Osprey
Cove and Osprey Crossings.
The majority of first-year students will reside with a same gender
roommate within a double occupancy room. Private rooms will only be
utilized to accommodate medical and disability needs as determined by
the UNF Disability Resource Center.
Please Note: Due to anticipated high occupancy in all first-year
housing areas, some triple rooms will be utilized in Osprey Landing,
Osprey Cove and Osprey Crossings. For more information, view the
Frequently Asked Questions about Triple Rooms.
The Department of Housing and Residence Life anticipates ample bed space
will be available to accommodate all newly admitted first-year students
for Spring 2014. Because a majority of the current Fall 2013
first-year students will return for the Spring 2014 semester, new
first-year students admitted for Spring 2014 will most likely be
assigned to partially occupied rooms within the first-year housing
areas. Based on this information the Roommate Search System will not be
utilized for Spring 2014.
The Department of Housing and Residence Life will be working to finalize
Spring 2014 room and roommate assignments in November 2014 based on the
Spring 2014 rent invoices will be mailed out to contracted residents
beginning November 1, 2013. Spring 2014 rent must be paid or pended by
December 2, 2013.
Building and roommate assignments, including roommate contact
information, will be mailed out to contracted residents beginning
December 6, 2013.
Spring 2014 Housing Check-in will be Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 9am - 4pm. Location: TBA
