Residence Halls

Students who live on campus at UNF have many advantages over students who commute and those who choose larger, more traditional colleges. 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. UNF's own surrounding forest keeps the urban sprawl out and the natural beauty.


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 six complexes UNF has to offer!
