Housing Application

Summer Room Selection

Thank you for your interest in living on campus at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Learn more about the Summer 2023 housing application, room change and room selection processes below:


Before you can select a room, you must complete the first three housing application steps. If you are a current student or current resident, you have likely already completed step 3. Spaces fill quickly and we encourage students to select a room at the earliest possible opportunity. View room selection dates below.


Develop a list of possible buildings you wish to live in. As beds are limited in each building, you should create a list that includes multiple options in ranked order. If you have decided to live with friends, make sure you have planned out who will live in each room if you choose a suite or apartment style hall. Explore hall options and view hall rates.

Buildings Open for Summer 2023 Terms:

Summer A/AB/C

Summer B
Holly Apartments
Cypress A/B (ACE and BBP Students only)

sTEP 3: Select Your Room

Remember, you will not be eligible to participate in room selection until you complete your housing application and submit the $50 housing application fee. New students also need to register for orientation before selecting a space. Once you complete these steps, you will be able to select a room from the available spaces using the Housing Portal. After room selection ends, housing applicants who have completed the first three housing application steps but did not select a room will be contacted by our team to review placement options.

Processing Time
As you complete the housing application steps prior to room selection, please note that payments take 1 business day to process.

Application Terms and Fees
Remember that each of the terms listed below represents an individual housing application and application fee. For example, if you will start at USF in the summer B term, you will complete a summer B housing application (and pay the $50 application fee) and a fall/spring housing application (and pay the $50 application fee). You only need to reserve a single Orientation session. Please review the housing agreement for full agreement and terms.
