The residential experience at USF is characterized by support, strong interpersonal connections, and academic engagement.

Our residents are engaged, challenged, and supported so they can become tomorrow's leaders. It's time to live the Bull's life.

Getting Started: The Housing Application

Whether you are a new student or a current resident, the first step to living on campus is to complete the housing application in the housing portal. The video below walks you through the application process! 

After you complete your application, you will need to submit the $50 application fee. Please note: this fee will be billed to your OASIS student account one business day after you complete the housing application. Please note, your admission deposit does not pay the $50 housing application fee. You will need to make a separate payment for the housing application fee.
