Housing Tours

Central Housing Office

Housing tours have returned on the USF Tampa campus! Tours are now offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. You must register for a tour at least 24 hours in advance. Walk-ups will not be accepted. Register here!

Tour check-in will take place outside of Argos Hall (RAR), as seen here on the north campus map. Please wait outside of the Argos Exchange dining hall on the ground floor.  Parking is available directly west in the metered spaces outside Argos or in the Crescent Hill Garage (CHG), as seen here on the north campus map, which features visitor parking kiosks next to the elevators on levels 1-5.

On a campus housing tour you will visit:

Tour Guidelines

For everyone’s health and safety during their visit, we've modified the housing tour program during the ever-evolving pandemic in the following ways.

• Guests must pre-register for tours online.
• Given recent guidance from the CDC and Board of Governors, we expect that all members of our community will wear a mask on campus, vaccinated or unvaccinated.
• Only small groups will be touring at one time.
• The maximum party size is 2 people: 1 student and 1 guest.
• This is a partially outdoor program. There will be no waiting in interior spaces and check-in will take place outside.

Health and safety guidelines will be strictly monitored and enforced. These guidelines apply to all guests, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Inability to follow instructions or honor community health and safety guidelines may result in a removal or reschedule. By signing up for a housing tour, you agree to follow these guidelines while you are on campus. By signing up for a housing tour, you also consent to volunteer information about your current state of health (related to COVID-19 symptoms) and undergo a touchless temperature check before your tour.

Please note that due to the evolving pandemic situation, USF may need to cancel reservations and events based on current COVID-19 data on campus, both locally and nationally. In the event of cancellation, we aim to notify you one week in advance; however, it is possible that tours may be canceled 24 hours prior to the scheduled time.

In the event of severe weather (thunder, lightning, tornado watch/warning, hurricane warning), we may suspend tours. We encourage you to check the weather before you arrive or call our office for more information.
