assignments are made in late May, and confirmation of your Area assignment will
be mailed to your permanent address in June. Your rental charge will also be
included in this mailing. Your fall rent must be paid by the due date to
prevent a loss of your assignment. Your building and roommate information will
become available prior to the semester beginning.
Roommate information and confirmation of your area assignment will become available prior to the semester beginning. The confirmation will have the names and contact information of your roommate(s). We encourage you to contact your roommate(s) before you arrive.
No. The residence halls are closed until move-in. It is possible that your assignment could change up until assignment information is released (because we make many changes during the summer).
Students who are interested in requesting a change in their assignment prior to the Fall semester can submit a Housing Assignment Change Request through “Resident Resources” tab on the Housing and Residence Life website. All changes are subject to space availability. If you submit a Housing Assignment Change Request, you will be contacted during the summer only if an option for a new assignment becomes available.
The room assignment process is based on the date your UNF Housing Contract was received. While not everyone received their first choice of residence, every effort was made to accommodate your preferences. Additionally, if you and another student(s) mutually requested one another as roommates, your housing assignment was made based on the date that the first of the two UNF Housing Contracts was received.
Minors who are at least 17 years of age are permitted to live on campus, but must submit with their signed Housing Contract a "Minors in the Residence Halls" addendum, which outlines for the minor student and the student’s parents/guardians the shared understanding of how the University views the presence of minor students in the residence halls, and how UNF staff will approach certain issues, should they arise, in this adult environment.
Minors not yet 17 years of age are not permitted to reside in on-campus residence halls, but Housing and Residence Life will work with students and families on planning for on-campus housing at any point each semester in preparation for the student reaching 17 years of age. This includes arranging for a late check-in after each semester begins.
The university cannot accept any package(s) shipped in advance of your move-in date.
Federal and State law mandate that we provide handicapped rooms in all of our housing facilities. Due to high demand for on-campus housing, we utilized all bed spaces. It is common for students without disabilities to be assigned to a handicapped room unless this room is needed by a student with special needs.

Once you move into your room, you and your roommate(s) are responsible for the upkeep of your room including the bathroom. Housing and Residence Life personnel do not clean individual rooms during the academic year. During the Winter Break, Housing and Residence Life does clean the tile floor in rooms in the following buildings: Osprey Landing, Osprey Cove and Osprey Crossings. Since Osprey Hall has shared bathrooms, Housing and Residence Life does clean these bathrooms on a daily basis. All Public Spaces (Lounges, Lobbies and Laundry Rooms) are cleaned on a daily basis by Housing and Residence Life Personnel.
Each of the residential areas has their own laundry facility facilitated by MacGray. The Landing, Cove and Crossings have one laundry room per building. Osprey Hall and Osprey Village have one central Laundry facility. Osprey Fountains has one laundry facility on each floor. It costs $1.25 per load to wash, and $1.00 per load to dry.
