Spring 2022 Room Selection
With so many students wanting to participate in the residential experience, USF Tampa campus housing has reached full capacity for Spring 2022 and no longer has any rooms available. At this time, we have begun our Standby List process.

Summer 2022 and Fall/Spring 2021-22 Room Selection
Summer 2022 and fall/spring 2021-22 room selection will open in early spring 2022. Review room selection dates and information here!

Want to live in a Living Learning Community (LLC)?

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.
