Housing

Director of University Housing: Adrienne Otto Frame, 109 Student Life Building

Residence Halls

The Office of University Housing is responsible for all on-campus housing facilities. The office provides living accommodations for full-time, degree-seeking, fee-paying students. All assignments are made without regard to race, religion, or national origin. Some rooms and apartments are adapted for residents who have physical disabilities.

University facilities on the main campus include four apartment buildings with varying bedroom/bathroom and roommate configurations that are available for unmarried students. In Rogers Hall, two students are assigned to each one bedroom/one bath apartment. Sherrill W. Ragans Hall houses women in three- and four-bedroom apartments. Most residents are undergraduates, but a limited number of rooms are reserved for single graduate students. Each apartment has two baths, a common study area, living area, and kitchen.

Contracts

Students may submit a contract for housing after notice of admission. The housing contract is available at http://www.housing.fsu.edu.

As space is limited, interested students are urged to submit their contracts as quickly as possible. Assignments are made on a priority basis: 1) returning students and 2) all new residents—by the date application and payment are received in the Office of University Housing. Although applicants are given the opportunity to express preference, no guarantee can be given that specific preferences can be met.

The terms and conditions of occupancy for Alumni Village require residents to file a notice of intent to vacate. Residents who will not continue as full-time, degree-seeking students will be required to vacate the day following the last scheduled examination for the semester.

The terms and conditions of occupancy in McCollum, Ragans, and Rogers Halls are for the contract period for the semester(s) for which the student contracts. All students who accept the Housing Contract and enroll in the University are rent obligated for the period of the contract. Academic year contracts include both Fall and Spring semesters. Graduate students may cancel their housing contracts for Spring semester by providing written notification that they want to cancel by December 1 per contract terms and conditions.

Other Options

Students who are unable or choose not to live in University housing have several housing options. A considerable number of apartments and homes located near campus are available for rent through local real estate agencies and private owners.

The Off-Campus Housing Office, a Student Government funded agency, serves as an information center, assisting students who seek off-campus housing. The office maintains a list of area houses, apartments, and private residence halls. The information available includes rental cost, deposit, distance from campus, lease terms, and amenities. Roommate requests are posted on a bulletin board outside the office located at 229–230 Activities Building, Oglesby Union.

The Florida State University wishes to address the needs of the total student whether those needs arise in the areas of social and cultural awareness, physical well-being, intellectual expansion, or spiritual and moral growth. The University seeks to provide students with these opportunities by offering various programs outside the classroom.
