First-year students at the University of North Florida now have a choice when it comes to living arrangements. While we believe all students benefit from living in the residence halls, beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, UNF students are no longer required to live in campus housing. Studies have shown that students who live on campus do better in classes, make lifelong friendships, graduate sooner and are more successful in their careers.
When living in campus housing during the first year, students must also purchase an on-campus meal membership. There are several different meal memberships to choose from depending on the student's individual needs. The minimal plan provides for 10 meals per week. Anyone living in the halls must still purchase a meal membership. Students who do not purchase a meal membership will have one added to their student account.
