Upper-Class Housing Information

Demand for on-campus bed space for upper-class students is extremely high. 

The 2023/2024 UNF Housing Contracts for the upcoming academic year will be released in myHousing on Monday, December 5, 2022 at 12 noon EST.

Any upper-class student who has a desire to live on-campus for the 2023/2024 academic year should submit their housing contract as soon as possible, but no later than March 3, 2023.

Please note, submission of a UNF Housing Contract does not guarantee a bed assignment. The earlier a student fully completes all steps of the housing contract submission process in myHousing, which includes the submission of a one-time $100.00 processing fee, the higher priority the student has to participate in on-line room selection process. A student failing to participate in scheduled on-line room selection processes greatly lowers any priority to receive a bed space.   

When bed space demand is higher than bed space availability, Housing and Residence Life may utilize a wait list to assign bed space that may open up through contract cancellations.  

The process to ultimately receive a bed assignment is a multiple step process and requires students to take specific required actions as outlined below.

STEP 1 (Required):

Fully submit the Fall 2023/Spring 2024 Housing Contract in myHousing, which includes the submission of a one-time $100.00 processing fee.

Optional Step:  Submit a Living-Learning Community Application. For information on upper-class Living Learning Communities please visit https://www.unf.edu/housing/llc/index.html

STEP 2 (Required):

Participate in the on-line room selection process in myHousing. The anticipated Upper-class On-line Room Selection Process timeline is as follows:

              Upper-class On-line Room Selection                            March 20 – 24, 2023

Please note: A student failing to participate in scheduled on-line room selection processes greatly lowers any priority to receive a bed space.   

STEP 3 (Required): 

Schedule a move-in appointment via myHousing.

Information on the move-in process and how to schedule a move-in appointment will be released July 17, 2023.

When the on-line room selection process begins March 20, 2023, what housing areas and room types will be available to upper-class room selection participants?

When the on-line room selection process begins, you can expect to see the following room types. As the on-line room selection process continues hour-by-hour students can anticipate the number of available rooms/beds in each facility will decrease as students participate in the process.

Osprey Fountains

Approximately 700 bed spaces. Approximately half of the rooms will be for females and half for males. Approximately 336 of these bed spaces will be in 4-person suites. Approximately 336 bed spaces will be in 6-person suites. In the traditional 6-person suite, there will be the 4 private bedroom spaces and a shared double bedroom for a total occupancy of 6. Some Osprey Fountains bed spaces will initially be limited to participants in upper-class Living-Learning Communities.

  • Please note, The Flats at UNF is a longer-term Housing Contract that includes Fall 2023, Spring 2024 and Summer 2024.
  • The Flats at UNF contract is approx. a 11.5-month contract, paid in 12 rent installments.
  • The Flats at UNF contract is NOT tied to enrollment status. If you withdraw, transfer, graduate or move out prior to the move out date, you are still responsible for the contract and rent.

Consider The Flats at UNF if…

  • You need year-round housing (11.5-month contract, fall, spring and summer)
  • You appreciate the ability to make monthly rent payments
  • You want traditional apartment living with an individual contract

The Flats at UNF is not for you if…

  • You do not anticipate the need for year-round housing (11.5-month contract, fall, spring and summer)
  • You will be engaging in an internship, student teaching/practicum or study-abroad experience that will take you away from Jacksonville
  • You will be graduating at the end of the fall or spring semester and plan to leave Jacksonville

 

Please note the following:

When bed space demand is higher than bed space availability, Housing and Residence Life may utilize a wait list to assign upper-class bed space that may open up through contract cancellations. If a wait list scenario arises, Housing and Residence life may limit the number of wait list participants.

Once a student submits a UNF Housing Contract, it is imperative that student actively monitor their UNF e-mail account for specific information and timelines associated with the on-line room selection process, move-in appointment scheduling and other pertinent information.

To accommodate medical and disability needs as determined by the UNF Student Accessibility Services, Housing and Residence Life may make adjustments to occupancy levels in some room types.

 

Preparing for Upper-Class Room Selection

Between now and March 3, 2023, upper-class students with a completed housing contract will need to ensure they have read and completed the following, as applicable:

  1. Ensure ALL room and roommate preferences within myHousing are up to date.
  2. Search AND mutually accept your desired roommate(s) in myHousing. Please note the following:
    1. Both you AND your desired roommate(s) must be in the same Roommate Group to be considered as a mutual request.
    2. It is important to be pro-active in accepting or declining roommates within myHousing to prevent any issues during the Room Selection process.
    3. Some rooms/apartments/suites and/or bed spaces may not be available for assignment during the room selection process due to Living-Learning Communities, Theme Housing, ADA needs, etc. Housing and Residence Life will communicate directly with students impacted by their space being unavailable prior to the on-line room selection process.
