University of North Florida students are living in luxury, at least according to Best College Values. The online ranking site named the Osprey Fountains residence hall No. 2 in the country for its state-of-the-art amenities.


 “Providing an inviting environment for students is important for retention,” said UNF President John A. Delaney. “Academics always come first. But, if students feel welcomed, they will excel in all areas.”


Osprey Fountains is the University’s most recently constructed residence hall; it opened in 2009. The complex boasts a fitness center, video game room, a convenience store called “Ozzie’s,” as well as a study library, conference rooms and a study lounge. Laundry facilities are available on every floor and Joe’s Diner provides a place to relax and hang out with friends.


Active students enjoy tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, along with a putting green and lighted running track. The signature amenity, lazy river, was recently featured on Sports Center when anchor and alumna Sara Walsh took a dip with the Atlantic Sun Championship men’s basketball team.

Housing options include a single or double bedroom as part of a one-, four- or six-bed suite. Pricing ranges from $1,130 to $5,000.     


UNF, a nationally ranked university located on an environmentally beautiful campus, offers students who are dedicated to enriching the lives of others the opportunity to build their own futures through a well-rounded education.
