Residence Halls


Students who live on campus at UNF have many advantages over students who commute and those who choose larger, more traditional colleges. Students who live on campus are typically more successful academically and graduate on time. They are also more likely to engage with their professors, fellow classmates and take advantage of all that UNF has to offer – including leadership opportunities, clubs, student organizations, study sessions, living-learning communities and much more when they live on campus. 

There are also many opportunities for formal and informal recreation through intramural sports, nature walks, jogging and picnics. The campus offers numerous fitness and wellness programs. In addition to the pleasure of living on our beautiful campus, resident students also enjoy many everyday conveniences and social benefits. So take time and explore the seven complexes UNF has to offer!


UNF's campus is uniquely beautiful and conveniently designed. It sits in the middle of more than 1,300 acres of woods on the edge of suburban Jacksonville in Northeast Florida. In fact, the beach and downtown are only minutes away by car.
