Current Student Toolkit
USF has additional services in place to assist you, including residential education, student advocacy, peer coaching and international student needs.
HOUSING & RESIDENTIAL education
On-campus residents will continue to be supported and guided by a talented team of professionals and para-professionals. Our first priority is the health and safety of our students, and staff will closely monitor the cleanliness of the facilities with special focus on high-traffic areas. To support physical distancing expectations, Residential Education will focus on community, and personal and academic success through various online modalities to enhance the residential experience. All residential students will have exclusive access to Bulls in the Cloud, a CANVAS supported engagement and resource hub for on-campus students. Should residential students have questions or concerns, they should contact their Resident Assistant, Community Manager, Residence Life Coordinator. They can also reach out to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES
Although the Office of International Services is currently physically closed, we remain fully operational and functional and will continue our work remotely. Advisors are answering emails and processing eforms. Most documentation will be emailed to you as an attachment. If you need to speak with an immigration advisor, you will request the appointment via the Request Advisor Appointment E-form under Contact Us in iStart. You select the topic of your question, and the appropriate advisor will reach out to you to set up a virtual appointment on Microsoft Teams.
