Housing Application

5 Steps to Living on Campus

Housing Application Update:

Due to the high demand for on-campus housing for the fall 2022 term, USF Housing & Residential Education is no longer accepting housing applications for the Fall/Spring 2022-23 term.

Housing & Residential Education is initiating a Standby List process to assign any remaining beds to students who have completed the first 4 steps to living on campus, as the rooms become available. Click here to learn more.


Complete the housing application in the Housing Portal. 
All first-time-in-college campus residents are required to select a meal plan as part of the application.

Step 2: submit the application fee

Submit your $50 application fee.
This fee will be billed to your OASIS student account one business day after you complete the housing application. Learn how to make a housing payment in OASIS.

Apply early!

Once the first two steps are completed, your place in line is set. Your place in line determines the earliest date and time that you will be able to participate in room selection (check your USF email regularly). However, you will not be eligible to participate in room selection until the first four steps are completed. If you decide not to attend USF, it will be your responsibility to cancel your housing contract before the cancellation deadlines to avoid charges.
