Resident studying in Osprey Hall

Osprey Hall

Osprey Hall, a three-story, lakeside, traditional college residence hall, opened in Fall 1989. Students wishing to have a more traditional housing experience, choose to live in Osprey Hall because of the opportunities it provides them to meet, study and socialize with other residents.

This housing option is a limited-access building with freedom of cooking and upkeep of kitchen and bathrooms. Rooms provide 180 square feet of carpeted living space and feature large windows overlooking lakefront and wooded scenery. Osprey Hall also offers a laundry facility where students can wash and dry their own clothes.

Students must provide their own television and computer equipment to access data and cable services. Osprey Hall also provides a lounge area on each floor and wing. Each lounge comes with a television where students can socialize while enjoying a movie or television show. Osprey Hall residents are encouraged to purchase one of the University's meal plan options provided next door at the Osprey Cafe through UNF Dining Services.

Ultimately, Osprey Hall offers students a tight knit community that is welcoming to all people from different backgrounds. With Osprey Hall being our more traditional and smallest residential area, it easily creates friendships and allows for relationship building.
