myBullsPath Portal

It's a one-stop student on-boarding portal that allows you to complete tasks all in one place (like registering for orientation or applying for housing). The portal is designed for newly admitted undergraduate students, both domestic and international, for all three USF campuses (Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota-Manatee).

Sign Up for Housing and Meal Plan If you plan to live on campus, housing assignments are made based on the date of a completed housing application. To ensure you receive your preferred housing assignment, do not delay! Housing Application
Housing Early Arrival Request Form Complete the Housing & Residential Education Early Arrival Request Form if you are living on campus! Glo-Bull Beginnings students who plan to live on-campus for the Spring term, can move directly into your residence hall when you arrive on January 2, 2018 for Orientation. In order to do so you must have completed the Early Arrival Request Form through Housing & Residential Education and pay the additional night's fees.

You do not have to do this if you do not want to move-in early, but you will need to consider where you will stay from January 2 until official move-in begins on January 6.

For students who plan to live off-campus, we encourage you to begin considering where you will live during Glo-Bull Beginnings and the Spring semester.

Students living on campus must also provide evidence of Meningitis vaccination to receive a housing assignment.

All new students must submit a signed USF Medical History and Immunization form to Student Health Services prior to registering for classes.
