Get ready to live the Bull's life!

We are thrilled that you want to make the University of South Florida Tampa campus your home away from home! The residential experience at USF is characterized by support, strong interpersonal connections, and academic engagement. By living on campus, you will wake up every day knowing that you are a valued member of our community, knowing that you matter, and that you have a place. 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.

If you are living on campus through the INTO USF (English Language) program, you will not submit a housing application. Visit the INTO housing website to get started!
